Directory Permissions help

Hello All,

I have a server with samba installed. Here I want to  give a group all
permissions to a particular directory.  So far so good no problem.
Now when a user in the group creates a sub directory, other users of the
group are not  able to add/change/delete files in this subdirectory due
to the group write permissions are not set when the sub directory is
created.  This is then set manually. How do I overcome this?

I want that anyone in the group can do anything in this directory
structure.  Do I have to set force unix group and force unix directory
mode? If so how?

Thanks in advance.
