Yes, the problem is the ntfs - it does not support SELinux
attributes. You can fix the problem by add the
context=system_u:object_r:samba_share_t:s0 option to the fstab entry
used to mount the ntfs partition.

When using Samba to share out files, it does not matter what file

computer accessing it. All my Samba shares are on ext3 file systems
