ownership problems on samba file server...

	We have a fileserver running Redhat Linux 6.2, which is running samba 2.0.3.  We have 6-12 users altering and creating files on this server.  They authenticate through a Windows NT 4 (SP6) Domain server.  All their machines are Windows 98 second edition.  The majority of the drive is owned by a group called "staff", which each user belongs to.  They seem to be able to modify & save existing files without changing ownership, but, when they create a new file, it saves with that user as owner/group.  Is there a way to modify this at all?  Right now I find myself having to chown the affected directories constantly so other users can modify the file without having to save it under a different filename.  Can anybody offer me a better solution for this?  I don't mind upgrading, but I don't want to go through the hassle if it's not going to fix my problem.  Thanks in advance.
