I'm having some trouble allowing my PCs to write to my samba share. I

using guest accounts, does that have anything to do with it?

Here is a bit of my smb.conf for a common fileshare for all users (my security = user).

The guest is account nobody

       comment = general fileshare
       path = /var/lib/samba/fileshare
       read only = No
       create mask = 0777
       force create mode = 0666
       directory mask = 0777
       force directory mode = 0777
       guest only = Yes
       guest ok = Yes

Here is the site that helped my to get my samba working. http://www.samba.netfirms.com/sambconf.htm#smb
