Are the XP machines domain members?
What are the permissions set on the , for example, Murthy directory?
Either your permissions are set wrong OR samba is not correctly mapping
your "samba" user to the underlying unix account. Just because the
share permissions are correct doesn't mean the file permissions are
Can you create a directory with 777 permisions in unix. Then see if
your samba user can access that directory and create files.
