[PLUG] samba server frustration

OK, so I'm trying to set up my Ubuntu box as a Samba server, something
which I have done successfully in the past. This time, though, no
luck. No, that's not quite true- if it simply hadn't worked at all,
that would have been better. What I have is something which *almost*
works, but not quite.

What I get is a server where I can use XP or Mac clients to mount in
read-only mode, but not w/write privileges. Obviously, that's useless.

I've created the correct users w/the correct passwords, and the drive
permissions are clearly correct, since I have no problem accessing the
files locally. It's got to be the smb.conf file. So, can someone send
me a copy of their working smb.conf, before I lose what tiny bit
remains of my mind?

Much obliged,
