For the "drawings" share, the smb.conf looks like good. And I examine
following smb.conf at Samba 3.5.6 and user monyo can write:

  path = /some/where
  # The permission of /some/where is 1777
  valid users = @group 
  # both tako and monyo are the member of group1
  write list = tako, monyo

Can maria write /media/80GBHD/Projects/Drawings from Linux(UNIX)?

Output of "ls -la /media/80GBHD/Projects/Drawings" is what you want?

What does samba log say?
