I've got a RAID server hosting a samba share that I tried to configure by hand and then tried to configure via webmin. Both methods have resulted in a share that mounts perfectly fine in Gnome, but that I cannot write to. I go to create a new folder and receive a permission denied error from Nautilus. Same goes for when I try to read a file from the share.
My server's /etc/samba/smb.conf reads as follows:
[global] read raw = no write raw = no server string = Whitebox socket options = TCP_NODELAY force directory mode = 0775 workgroup = WORKGROUP force create mode = 0664 create mask = 664 directory mask = 0775 hosts allow = 192.168.42. security = user [share] read list = nobody,@nobody writeable = yes wide links = no write list = patrick,@users path = /mnt/share valid users = patrick,@users public = yes
I'm really not sure what's wrong here. Any help?

Kinda helps to chown the share properly. It occurred to me when I su'd to myself after ssh-ing to the server and still couldn't create a file. Impressive how a layer of abstraction can confuse an otherwise decent understanding of the basics.
Now to make sure I can automount the share when the server boots and retain permissions.
