Default Setting Up Samba - Howto Problem

I'm a newbie attemtping to follow the instructions in
http://www.howtoforge.com/samba_setup_ubuntu_5.10

Ubuntu (6.10) is working fine - desktop version
I followed p.3 down to installing putty - which I did successfully

Q1- Rights to server
I can access the server I've set up using my ubuntu pswd (but only using the IP, not the name), but when I attempt to run the first command in italics "touch /quota.user /quota.group" I get a permissions error.

- Am I right in thinking that this should command should be run through putty?
- If so, how do I determine the proper user and password?
- Must I be working as root throughout? If so, must I have in somewhat created a non-changing root account, something Ubuntu frowns upon from what I gather.
