Hi Parag,

Your requirement may different but the way i am using samba in my office 
is like this:-

i have created folder share with read access to all but write access to 
persons whose group is  @pm.


  path = /opt/global/share
  public = no
  read only = yes
  write list = @pm
  create mask = 0775
  directory mask = 755
  writeable = no
  force directory mode = 0775
  force group = pm

man samba.conf, and read for "write list" , "read list" , "create mask" 
, "directory mask" etc which would help you a lot
in implementing ACLs.
Infact you can nicely create shares for

1. Public                       all read/write
2. Group enabled          read/write only e.g above
3. Confidential             accessed by only one user (mapping home dirs)

For adding users to sambpasswd file you need to "smbpasswd -a user"
set the proper setting for folders whatever you share;

e.g chmod -R 775 /opt/global/pm; chmod g+s /opt/global/pm; chown -R 
pm.pm /opt/global/pm; groupadd pm; put the login ids in /etc/group for 
giving them access
All this applied to the above mentioned group read/write scehma, you may 
require a diff stuff ;)
