We don't have this option. The network shares are for personal file storage. 
The idea is to prevent students from executing programs they download and 
store on the network. I'm aware that removing R permissions will work where 
required, but it won't work in this situation. It works fine with NT, and I'm 
hoping to get the same function with Samba if possible.
