You could try reading this:

Just copying something without understanding why, isn't a good idea.

Your understanding is fairly close. You must have the permissions to 
change things on Unix from Windows and the Windows user you are doing it 
with must be known to the Unix client. This means that 'getent passwd 
Windowsuser' must produce output on the Unix machine.

Can you post your smb.conf ?
