Configuring a Samba share with unix extensions which all users can write to

Because the unix permission model sucks, it is very hard to have a shared directory where everybody has full access to each others files. The same is true when making a shared samba archive. Luckily, samba has forcing options.

  comment = save stuff here
  path = /path
  guest ok = yes
  writeable = yes
  browseable = yes
  force user = samba
  force group = samba
  create mask = 0660
  force create mode = 0660
  directory mask = 0770
  force directory mode = 0770

The key here is the force modes.
