I made the changes to my configuration so that it is now

[homes]
comment =3D Home Directories
valid users =3D %D\%S
browseable =3D No
read only =3D No
create mask =3D 0660
directory mask =3D 0770

However, after a forced reload of smb, I still get the same errors.

If you are integrating the samba server into a windows domain, you might
want to try setting the valid users line like this: "valid users =3D
%D\%S"

that was my problem until I did that.

try putting a valid path that the users have write access to their
home...

[homes]
comment =3D Home Directories
path =3D /home/samba/homes
browseable =3D no
writable =3D yes
valid users =3D %S
create mask =3D 600
directory mask =3D 700

# ls -ld /home/samba/homes
drwxrwx--- 2 root dom_users 4096 Jun 23 2003 /home/samba/homes

maybe even get crazy enough to create directories in /home/samba/homes
for each user...
