I'm fairly new to Linux and recently set up my old Dell 500SC with Ubuntu Server 8.04 using this guide: http://www.howtoforge.com/ubuntu-home-fileserver

I got it running just fine follow the guide stepwise. However, since it is a "simple" server, it didn't detail ways to set permissions to the folders (delete or rename operations) from Windows XP.

My server will be stored in my closet. Ideally I'd like to access it remotely from Windows as a visible drive, with complete admin privileges to the folders on the Ubuntu server.

Right now, I can only add files to the server, but cannot modify or delete files from my Windows machine. Do any of you have any good resources or tips on how to get this running correctly?
