I want all users to have access to their own home directory, but on top of that want to give two users access to everyone's home directory as well as their own. I'm not having much luck with this, could someone help me out.

Here's a copy of my smb.conf file:

workgroup = WORKGROUP
netbios name = Server
server string = "Downstairs"
security = USER
wins support = yes

# Home Directories
comment = "Home Directories"
valid users = %S, dave, rob
read only = no
browseable = no
