Samba digest 2532 / Problem with "force create mode" et. al.

Frankly spoken you have a real RTFM problem.

The manual pages for smb.conf say that "create mask" and "create mode" are 
equal. It also says that there is only a "force XXXX mode" (where XXXX is 
either create or directory). So a replacement of mask with mode will do the 

The other mistake is that there is no "force create group" parameter. The 
correct name of this parameter is "force group". So another change to your 
smb.conf is needed.
