I have installed Samba 1.9.15p8 and I couldn't write to the Win98 PC. I am running Slackware 2.0.36. From the Linux box, I could read/write to Win98 box. From the Win98 box, I could read from my Linux box but not write. Any ideas?
(my /etc/smb.conf) [public] path = / public = yes only guest = no writable = yes printable = no

Maybe you have some problems with Linux access rights on /. If you want to set up a public read/write directory, you should use a public directory such as /tmp. Here is my smb.conf config for /tmp:
[Tmp] comment = Temporary partition (rw) path = /tmp read only = no guest ok = yes case sensitive = no mangle case = yes preserve case = yes
If you want to test SAMBA more heavily from Win98, you may need to configure user access and passwords. Just add the following section in smb.conf:
[homes] guest ok = no read only = no
Don't forget Win98 uses encrypted passwords, so you should add the following lines in the [global] section of your smb.conf:
[global] security = share encrypt passwords = yes smb passwd file = /etc/smbpasswd
and add users and passwords with the smbpasswd command. —Pierre Ficheux, firstname.lastname@example.org
