Hi All,
  Can samba access a unix fs using the unix group privilege ?

The experiments I have tried so far indicate that if the file is owned by the
user, then the 'user' unix privileges are obeyed, but if the file is owned by
someone else, then the 'other' privilege takes effect (not group).

I would like to setup samba so that only a specific group of people can modify
some files (not owned by themselves) but not make these files 'world-writable'.
