If we access the share with any Windows user with Admin rights, it can be deleted. If not then no. The user that created it is not an administrator on the Windows network, and they cannot delete it. If we log them in with admin privileges across the network, then they can, but we don't want to do that.

This is what I suspect, that since its owned by the built-in Windows administrator, the Windows user accessing the share must be an administrator to delete it. Is that what you're suggesting?

OK, so it sounds like the file is /tmp/myfile.txt and you're accessing it via a NetServer share of the root (sharing the root would make me incredibly nervous, but I digress).

As I recall, when you create a file under the local root file system, the owner has authority but no else does (you'd expect it to have the dir permissions but it doesn't). What user are you using to access the NetServer? If you're using a different user, or guest access, that could be your problem.
