So far you just edit the smb.conf.  Permissions are based on the
filesystem permissions (but we don't do a translation between posix and
NT ACLs yet). 

There was an effort to allow shares to be created over the network, but
I don't know the state of that code (it probably needs to be rewritten,
based on feedback later received).
