Login fails from Windows on NTFS-3G Samba Share

http://unix.stackexchange.com – My reading and experimenting is going round in circles, so it's time to enlist some expert help. I have a RaspberryPi (though could be any Debian Linux box) connected to an external hard disk formatted as NTFS. In fstab, I've experimented with 'defaults' and 'permissions' and come to the conclusion it'd be easier using 'defaults' rather than have to map Windows users to Linux users. /dev/sda1 /media/disk ntfs-3g defaults,uid=1000,gid-1000,dmask=007,fmask=007 0 0 user 1000 is the 'pi' user /media/disk/shared --my samba root folder. Must be accessible from Windows and Mac Problem I (HowTos)
