Hey! I hope I help you:
You should have the share folder in smb.conf like this:

Read only= no

And then configure the permission like this message says:

Log in from a domain member (xp or whatever windows) with your
And set in the security tab for this "finance" the rights of user and grou

By Daniel Muller.

But YOU CAN'T change the permission if your sistem NOT SUPPORT both
the "user" and "system" xattr namespaces.

You can view if your kernel suport this doing this (Example on Debian Squeeze):

#cat /boot/config-`uname -r` | grep  CONFIG_EXT3_FS_XATTR
#cat /boot/config-`uname -r` | grep CONFIG_EXT3_FS_SECURITY

You should see:


If not :
       You should recompile your kernel with that options to "YES"
If yes:
       You should mount your filesystem with the option "user_xattr"
in /etc/fstab file:
       Example:  /dev/sda1         /               ext3
errors=remount-ro,user_xattr     1      1

Then you should change the permissions like Daniel Muller said.
