Granting Access Rights

We need to modify access rights on the Unix server so that when file(s) are
created in a directory the file(s) get the group (rw-) access privileges.
When creating files in Unix the files do receive the group (rw-) access
rights.  However, files created on a PC with WINDOWS 95 within the same
directory will not receive the group (rw-) access rights.

We have added the following to the smb.conf file:

		comment = newsletter
		path = /some/newsletter
		valid users = @staff @editors
		read only = yes
		write list = @editors

Any assistance in resolving this matter, would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
