I don't have a windows box sitting here to test with at home so I'm  
not sure if that is the case. I just remember that the last time I  
gave myself headaches setting up a PDC using samba, that you had  
permissions/users that were set by samba AND users/permissions that  
pertained to the files/folders on the filesystem themselves. They  
have to work in tandem and getting the setup correct is tricky  
sometimes. The [Printers] and [Homes] sections have pretty bullet  
proof defaults for what they do, but setting up custom shares means  
you have to get your permissions and users/groups just right for both  
the filesystem and samba. Are you using the stick bit? groups? What  
do you want the share to do? If we know exactly what access you want  
to give, we might be able to help better. ... or it might just be  
buggy, or that first permissions screen really DOES apply to the  
shares and not the files/folders.
