Do you have write permissions to the directory? Try opening the directory
by clicking on start, run \\machinename\admin$ if you can bring up the
directory, then try to copy a file to it. If you can't then you need to
check Samba's access.conf and/or use chmod to modify your file system

$ shares are HIDDEN. If you want to be able to browse the share via network
neighborhood/explorer/etc. then you must remove the $ or EXPLICTLY type the
full path to the share.
