Thanks for responding to my problem . 
I have put 
    nt acl support = no
   nt smb support = no
in the smb.conf

with it user while accessing through NT Explorer->Properties can stil see the 'Security tab' but if they try to change the permissions on their homedirs it doesn't get saved. So they can't change the permissions. I will still like to see only one tab'General' as they see in ver 1.9.
If anybody knows any other magic line to put it in smb.conf please Email me.
