Ok. I fixed the permissions problem and Emerald can know write to the
extends file, but it is only writing the username and date the account was
created. Any ideas as to what causes this?

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.
