Ok, so thanks to Bodhi once again I have everything running as it should now... Been downloading since last night without any freezing
Now what I'm trying to do is rename, move and delete files/folders over my network.
When I go to folders located in the VENUS directory on my laptop I'm unable to do any edits to the folders located in the transmission directory where my downloads are located. How can I fix this? What I would like to do is move folders to a different directory where I have all my older movies (located on the same hard drive), but I keep getting the message that I need permission to perform that action. The same thing happens when I try renaming the folders themselves. I am able to rename the file in the individual folders though.
Do I need to change something in the Samba configuration file?
Ok, so I figured out what was wrong. Used the ls -l command and found that the permissions for the directory I needed to work with did not have the "w".... I of course used the following command to fix the permissions
chmod a=rwx filename
Worked like a charm!

Congrats :-) good job! BTW, there is a slightly different flavor of the chmod command to change permission should you find the need for it in the future:
chmod -R +w directoryname
This does a recursive chmod to set Write permission for the directoryname and all subdirectories/files in that folder. Add what ever permission after the + (e.g. +wr) as needed.
