your explanation is confusing.sounds like you have fileserver running
debian with samba and you have desktop with winxp, right? So you
create a folder using the winxp machine? but where is that folder
created? on the winxp's harddrive, but in the shared folder? or is it
created in some network share on the server? 

Also, you claim "SAMBA deletes all new created folder by WinXP users
in their home folders..." I find that hard to believe. That sounds
more like a windows problem.
