what about now?

May be I have some misconfiguration. However, where is the compatibility to a 
native Windows Server?
How can I configure my samba server and my unix permissions to grant _full 
access_ to a network share that is shown by my clients as _full access_?.

A little guessing myself about why not getting hintful answers (bug?, 
BTW, the clients are W7 machines.
