Default group for new files/directories

I created a Samba share on a UNIX system. I mapped to the share from my NT
station with user 'kaman', who has a primary group of 'staff' in the UNIX
system. All files/directories I created from NT on the share has a group of
'sys'. How can I have it default to whichever group the user is connected
as, 'staff' in this case? I tried 'force group = staff' but no luck. Is
'force group' available on Samba 1.9.18p7?

I am using Samba 1.9.18p7. The smb.conf file looks like:

security = server

	path = ...
	public = no
	writable = yes
	printable = no
	create mask = 0766
	directory mask = 077
	force group = staff

Thanks in advance
