Thanks for the link Akemi. I give it a A-. One problem with it:

chmod -r 755 /mnt/data - This depends on usage.
chown -R user:group /mnt/data - This also.
*or* chmod -R ug+rwxs,o-w,o+rx /mnt/data - This also to.
It is totally dependent upon how samba is going to be used in the
network environment thus I can not say an exact permission option to
choose. If the folders contain W$ Profiles they would be read only.

Home Directories: Yes they can be Shared on a Per User Basis. What I
mean is only one user connects to a /home/user-name and no other user
connects to that same home. That home folder can contain a W$ roaming
profile plus be a holder for the user created files.

The article could be a starting point for more samba articles in a
series. One small basic configuration file would be good also.
Explanation at the begining is pretty good. Would also be good to put
all the samba articles on the wiki in one direct place.
