and it just occurred to me that I should add something to the wiki about
this.

In the troubleshooting section, I added a few links...

http://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Samba_Troubleshooting

This should allow most everyone to function with samba and keep using
SELinux.

My guess is that you only needed to run either (or both - you weren't
specific about the shares) of these commands...

setsebool -P samba_enable_home_dirs 1

chcon -t samba_share_t /path/to/share/non/homes/share

or you could have done these steps...

setsebool -P smbd_disable_trans 1
service smb restart

and that would have allowed you to keep running selinux without
enforcement of restrictions on samba daemons at all (in the thought that
selinux on but not minding samba is better than off altogether)

I think one of the things we like is to consider the notion that a Linux
system is more secure than a Windows system but it won't remain that way
if we turn off the security layers because we don't understand them.
