World Edition 2 via samba.  Fine and Dandy - I've been able to mount the 

I still am unable to write from the ubuntu server to the drive mounted 
via samba.  What are some things I can check here?

here is my /var/oxsemi/

# cat

force user=<one_name>
valid users=<users>

guest ok=Yes
browseable = yes
writable = yes
security mask = 0700
create mask = 0700
