file permissions

Just a note about file permissions with SMB on Linux. P had moved some folders to another folder. As a standard user with ssh, I couldn't delete them - had to be root. P then demonstrated that the folder with files in a Samba share was with owner nobody:nobody so that it could be deleted by users accessing the Samba share as guest on Win or Mac.
