    Samba, permissions.

    How can I share a resource (a directory) with permissions such that anyone can mount the directory, and such that anyone can delete ANY file or directory and also create any file and directory within the resource?

    Here's what I have for my home movie server

       workgroup = home
       netbios name = kirby
       server string = shared files
       security = share
       browseable = yes
       hosts allow = 192.168.15.
       client plaintext auth = yes
       client lanman auth = yes   
       path = /home/rcgreen/common
       comment = movies
       read only = No
       guest ok = Yes
       path = /home/rcgreen/archive
       comment = media
       read only = No
       guest ok = Yes
       path = /home/shared
       comment = stuff
       read only = No
       guest ok = Yes
    Edit as appropriate. The directories I have shared are read write
    and execute for everyone 777
    Obviously it would be insecure, if any of your users
    are hostile or irresponsible.
