Force User

Here is what I am trying to accomplish:
I want to create a share that will force users to a ID and group, allow
certain users write privileges to certain directories only and others read
only. I have set this up and every time I create a file the owner is set to
root and the group is correct. Any help would be great, the following is
what I have in the smb.conf file:

        path = /lanman/Users/content_migration
        valid users = eoz egh bfs txh
        admin users = eoz egh bfs txh
        read list = eoz egh bfs txh
        write list = eoz egh bfs txh
        force user = migrate
        force group = segrp
        create mask = 0775
        directory mask = 0775
        browseable = No
