Default Write files/directores with Samba

I have samba working (somewhat) on my CentOS box. i can see the share from my windows machine but i can't create a file or directory. I have tried to make this very simple but i guess i am missing something. here is my smb.conf file.

workgroup = wrkgrp
netbios name = Linux Box
load printers = No
path = /var/lib/vmware/Virtual Machines/
available = No
encrypt passwords = yes
comment = Public Stuff
read only = no
writeable = yes
admin users = smbuser
path = /var/lib/vmware/Virtual Machines/
force user = root
valid users = smbuser
public = yes
available = yes

Someone enlighted me... thanks in advance.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
