[PLUG] samba question

I have an old red hat 9 samba server, and have built a replacement with
Fedora Core 8.  I've copied all the data files over, and made all the
directory and file permissions the same on both systems.

I edited the new server's smb.conf, and restarted smbd.  I see the new
share from M$ windows PCs, same as with the old share, but I can not add
or edit a file in any directory on the new server.

I mounted the new samba share (called "netdrive") from the local machine,
and even from there, it's read-only.

on the new server:

[root@dolphins /]# smbd -V
Version 3.0.28-0.fc8
[root@dolphins /]#
[root@dolphins /]# mount //dolphins/netdrive /test -rw -o user=bill
[root@dolphins /]#
[root@dolphins /]# touch /test/testfile
touch: cannot touch `/test/testfile': Permission denied
[root@dolphins /]#
[root@dolphins /]# umount /test
[root@dolphins /]#
[root@dolphins /]# testparm
Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
Processing section "[netdrive]"
Loaded services file OK.

        workgroup = BILLHANCE
        server string = Samba Version %v
        passdb backend = tdbsam
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        max log size = 250
        wins support = Yes
        hosts allow = 192.168., 127.

        comment = network drive
        path = /usr/local
        read only = No
        guest ok = Yes
[root@dolphins /]#
[root@dolphins /]#
[root@dolphins /]#

Any ideas?  thanks,
