Apart from number 6 which I feel is a typo (chown should be chmod), you
seem to be doing everything correctly. The only problem I can see is
that you said you use the default usershares path. The default path
is /var/lib/samba/usershares, but the error message has
/var/samba/usershares, which are you using ?
