Eh, I hate it when someone says "RTFM" without telling you WHICH manpage to
read ;)

To understand permissions, read the chmod manpage.  It is pretty thorough in
its explanation.  Once your permissions are set correctly, your users can
mount the shared directory very easily using smbmount.  I am not sure on the
syntax but the smbmount manpage should have that.
