What I would like to do: can it be done?

I have a RHL box running Samba 1.19.8p10 (or whatever the latest one is). I
would like to share the /home/httpd directory read-only to everyone on the
network and read/write to a few specific people. I cannot get the passwords
for these people, and I want this to be as transparent as possible (read: as
"invisible" as possible). I don't want to have to add every user to the
group, but I'm willing to add the users who need read-write access.

Help would be appreciated.

I've been playing with the usermap, read list, write list, and a few other

BTW, is there a way for Samba to use the NT groups instead of the Unix
groups for checking write permissions?
