I wanted to make a "shared" folder that all logins on my LAN could see
over samba (for macs, linux and XP) in which I can put our

So I have a number of questions:

1. where? I was thinking either /home (/home/data) or /usr/local/share
(/usr/local/share/data)but I also toyed with the idea of creating a
/data folder at the root level.

2. What perms? I tried creating the /data at root (since deleted) with
owner root and group axxs2all (which all users belong to), but I
couldn't cd into it??? I had also chmod'd the folder as drw_rw_rw_ but
that didn't help.

I have plenty of room on my partition, but no "spare" partition as such.

Has anyone done this, would they recommend a place in the filesystem
in particular, and what perms will I need?

I'm very much not used to only having sudo, instead of plain old root...
