Cannot delete files on a Windows 2003 server from MAC clients

I have a windows 2003 file server with Macintosh services enabled.
I've created a share which both windows users and mac users connect to
share files. Mac users can successfully connect to the windows server
via SMB. Mac users cannot delete any existing files (even if they
have full control of the files). Mac users can however copy files to
the share and then delete them. When Mac users try to delete existing
files they get the following error:

"The Operation cannot be completed because you do not have sufficient
privileges for some of the items."

Additional info:

1. The files were migrated from a windows 2000 server, where the Mac
users didn't have this problem.
2. Windows users don't have this problem.
3. Most Mac clients are OS 10 (Jaguar)

Thanks,
Will

Why connect via SMB if you've got SFM enabled? Connecting via AFP is
probably more reliable...

I have the same problem and have not got the hang on how
to connect using AFP. It is probably a simple operation
but I have had no success. Can anyone please guide me.
Have Win2003 with SFM started and OSX 10.3.2 G5 2x2GHz
(10.3.3 doesn't work on my Mac)!

Simply enter in AFP://serverdnsname. Voila.
