That's where it gets put. After editing the conf file and putting the
option in.

Logged in as root on a linux client using share mode can't delete a file
or folder when made by root on the samba server in one of the shares.
That is using the user nobody. Would that be correct as user nobody only
can't delete file made by root n the samba server.

I suspect after really thinking about it I'll be much better of adding
the linux client to Active Directory and do all authentication that way
to solve everything. Then later on setup samba to serve the Windows user
