[Samba] share permissions

Interestingly, I couldn't turn off selinux using their method:
$ sudo echo 0 > /selinux/enforce
-bash: /selinux/enforce: Permission denied
Perhaps it's a CentOS thing. Anyway, `sudo setenforce 0` seemed to work
in that it didn't give me an error message, but OTOH didn't seem to work
in that the output of ls -alhDZ was the same:
drwxrwxr-x. me me unconfined_u:object_r:samba_share_t:s0 mytestshare
But in any case, it still gives me the same error from Windows.
Also something strange happened, after a while I could not navigate to
\\newdc without a similar error, but I had not been doing anything in
the system, so I'm not sure what might have caused it. Running `sudo
killall samba` and then `sudo samba` made it suddenly be browseable
again. Maybe not related...not sure...
Anyway thanks for your help, Ricky. Any other ideas? BTW I had set up
the selinux permissions on the mytestshare dir per the HOWTO at
http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/SetUpSamba . I'm pretty sure that's why
it says samba_share_t on the ls output above.
