Dear all,

I've got a linux server running samba-3.0.10 with some windows xp and 
windows 2k clients. My config is something like:

        server string = aroprod
        workgroup = WORKGROUP
        hosts allow = 192.168.0. 127.
        security = share
        load printers = yes
        printing = cups
        printcap name = cups
        prefered master = yes
        os level = 65
        read only = no

        path = /sis/publica/
        read only = No
        guest ok = Yes
        nt acl support = No
        force user = sis
        force group = sis

When accessing any folder within this "publica" share from a windows xp 
the folder's attribute "read-only" is set. Any file within this folder 
has got sis:sis ownership and u+rws,g+rws permissions; besides, even if 
windows says that is "read-only" I can browse inside it and create or 
delete any folder or  file inside it, which is right as it is not a 
read-only share.

Does anyone has an idea what could be happening and how to avoid windows 
showing it as "read-only"???

Many thanks in advance.

Best regards
