Do you ever read the questions? The question was not how to change the  
archive bit from a samba client but how to have a samba server simulate  
an archive bit which a DOS/Windows backup programme needs.

Samba can map the archive bit to other permission bits, see smb.conf(5)  
and search for "archive".
