Files creation ownership

Dear Samba Gurus,
I would like to know how to configure Samba to keep the file ownership
when someone creates a file on the Win95/98/NT boxes, instead of having
everything set to guest.guest, what forces to change the ownership for
that file to the right user.group everytime.
On the UNIX side, there's an account like martin.develop, so when I log
in the network using a Win box, I get my own home directory and some
other shared stuff when I use the "network neverhood"; that's just fine.
The problem: if I create a simple text file, for example, I cannot save
it to my own home directory because of the permissions, although as the
user martin I have all rwx permission on that directory.
All I can do is to choose another "public" (mode 777) location and save
there my file, which is owned by guest.guest, and usually is rwx------.
Now, if I want to use/modify the file I must chown martin.develop
before... I think you already get the idea...
Has anybody faced this already or am I overseeing something obvious???
Thanks for your help!
