Subject: Default File Permissions

Hi all- 
Is there a way to set samba so that when a user creates a folder or file it
takes the permissions of the parent directory?  I did set the create mask
and directory mask but that does not allow me to adopt the permissions of
the parent folder.  I will install an ACL package soon so any information
required to allow parent folder permission adopting with ACLs is needed too.
Any help would be much appreciated.
