access denied with file:// protocol

I tried to set up what I thought was the simplest repository possible with
tortoisesvn. On a network share (samba) that everyone in our group has
access to, I built the FSFS repository, imported the files, and checked them
out onto one of my local drives. I made modifications and checked the
changes in with no problems. But, when another user attempted to check the
files out and modify them, he got the following error:

Error Commit failed (details follow):
Error Can't set file 'Z:\<path to repository>\repository\db\current'
read-write: Access is denied

It then builds a backup 'current' file for that user. But, I can't find any
write priveleges that would block this. In fact, the user appears to be
able to read and write the current file (though we didn't actually try to
write, it just looks like he should be able to from the priveleges).

I didn't think I would have to set up the authz or svnserve.conf files,
since I'm not using a subversion server. But, I tried opening up priveleges
in these files, and that didn't work.

It seems I'm missing something basic here, can anyone tell me what it is?
