I have managed to get so far with setting up Samba in Xfce4-Ububtu 8.10. I can see the other windows computer and the files therein but cannot access the files. I have set the 'share' in windows but on my Xubuntu I cannot change the recommended settings in Apps/System/Users & Groups, the properties of /media/network file for my username read write, group read only, others read only. I can change the setting but it does not stick!
Happily from the windows computer I can see and access the files but cannot write (copy over) new files.
Would appreciate your suggestions to fix this, and a guide to affect (chmod) so that I do not get into a big mess!.
