We had similar permission issues.  I suggest you try putting into your 
smb.conf file "inherit permissions = yes".  All files created in the
directory have the same permissions and ownership as the parent directory.

Hi all,

I've got a question regarding file permissions. I've eventually managed to
get a Win2K Samba Server running, and it's very nearly perfect! Or at least,
as perfect as NT gets... :-)

So, my last problem is that despite setting the network drive permissions
(/export/samba/data) as 770, any files written to this directory by samba
(the end user) are written with 755 permissions, with the consequence of any
files being created by a user may be read by his or her colleagues, but not
amended or overwritten by them.

I've tried convincing the users of this Server that this is network security
and they have to make duplicate copies, but they're not having any of it!!
