http://askubuntu.com – I'm able to share my internal 2ndry NTFS drives (sdb1,2 and 3) on the network with Windows pc's now but even though Sambe read/write is enabled, Windows network pc's can only open files "read-only" and can't save files to the samba shared drives/folders. I try to set permissions in Ubuntu via folder and/or file properties even logged in root via Nautilus but all the samba shared folders and files are set as owner = root, accessible and does not allow me to change them to read/write, it just resets to root, accessible, in other words, I can't change permissions. I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 Gnome (HowTos)
