Is there any configuration option that I should turned on or off, so that I can delete the said folder? Btw, option 'follow symlinks = yes' is must for me and I'm using samba version 3.0.20.

There's no easy way to do this unless the symlink path (not the target) is contained
in the "veto files" option and "delete veto files" is set to yes.
