just some short remarks:
as you use samba, samba rights will be used.
if you give anybody write access to .../home0 it is clear that anybody
can delete files there. You should try if this is also the case from
windows clients (using samba). I doubt it is a distro issue.
As for Openoffice, you should know that KDE uses its own services (like
media:// or smb://) that are not known by GTK apps like Mozilla or OOo.
You should do a real smb-mount so you can access your samba share from
any shell (using something like "ls /mnt/samba/home/").
Then there are still cases where OOo doesn't open remote files because
of encoding issues. In such cases you should try to rename the file to
english-only (ASCII printable) letters w/o spaces or anything.
Possibly it's a mixture of both obsticals. So first try "ls $PATH/$FILE"
and then "oowriter $PATH/$FILE". Try to put everything in quotes, like:
$ oowriter "/mnt/samba/myhome/file with some name.odt"
