1 & 3 certainly are, but 1777 is only good for world-writable
shares.  As Peter suggests, if you had corresponding Unix
groups, you then have GIDs for your NT groups.  This allows
you to use 'chgrp' to setup group-writable only areas (and
perhaps give others only read access?).  Of course, I'm not
up on the ACL support, which may be better still.

Read up on 'chmod', 'chown', 'chgrp', and what the 'ls -l'
display's permissions information means.  I think that
will clarify a lot for you.
