[CentOS] Strange Samba Issue

Another possibility is selinux.  I just build a CentOS 6 machine.
When I tried mapping a drive, I kept getting permission denied.
When I got into the /tmp directory, I was able to create files
from Windows via Samba and see those files but ones created on
the folder either did not show up or were inaccessible.  
Listing the extended attributes showed that the selinux part of
the attributes was different.

Researching showed that there are a number of little selinux flags
to set to get samba to work.  I went into /etc/selinux/config and
turned off selinux to test and rebooted.  The problems went away.
Now I just have to figure out what to configure, so I can turn 
selinux back on.
