You can also create a list of users to give write access to the share with write list option.
valid users: You can make a share available to specific users.
[share]
path = /path/to/share
writeable = Yes
write list = ed ed1 ed2
valid users = ed ed1 ed2

That is vi editor not the VE. You can modify the smb.conf to setup a samba server. If you are not comfirtable with cli in linux then install a web based tool called webmin in your box.

If you require some more info then please feel free to ask us.
