You can log into a Windows computer as 'DOMAIN\Administrator' and then 
set the permissions on a Samba share, but you must create the share 
correctly, you cannot have any of the old parameters such as 'valid 
users' etc, see here:


This should work, if it doesn't , you probably have something set up 
incorrectly, so double check everything
