would samba assume robs home directory is /home/rob or would it go to robs actually home directory which is /home/daniel where all of the shares are stored. Infact I set all users home directories to /home/daniel and instead of making an mp3 group I just added everyone to group daniel. I'll try the security and case sensitive fixes later when I reload redhat or debian on the file/print server. It currently is running freebsd not that it has anything much to do with the problem.
