OK, I am trying to understand this as well, I take it that the uidNumber 
you add is a unique number that is inside the range you have set in 
smb.conf, but what about the gidNumber? do you set it to '515' and is 
this also inside the range?

Who owns the share on the disk and what are the permissions, also what 
is the share in smb.conf.
