You can use any of the ASCII editors that come with your Linux system. You will always have vi installed, but if you don't have any experience with vi, it's not really straight forward to use. If you use KDE, you could for example use kwrite, if you system has joe or pico, you could use these in a terminal window.
Regardless of which one you use, start it from a terminal window with the file name as parameter:
kwrite /etc/samba/smb.conf
vi /etc/samba/smb.conf
joe /etc/samba/smb.conf
...

Which Linux distribution are  you running?

if you mean in linux then you would do a chmod on the folder, if you are talking about samba, then you would have to edit the share in samba in /etc/samba/smb.conf and add that user to the share.

Go to the config section about the share /netshare/ops/inventory in your smb.conf file. If you already allow access on a per user basis, you should have a "valid users" option in this section. Just add the new user to this list:

valid users user1,user2,user2,newuser

You can also add this user to a user group, and then enable access based on this group:

valid users @usergroup

Unfortunately RH9 does not install any simple editor by default. You should however have gedit available. Try that.
