[Samba] Can't manipulate files on Samba server after installing W2K SP3

I made some progress on the problems I am having.  If we make people root as their primary group, they have no problems with file manipulation(IE - editing a file and saving it on the samba share).  And once the files are manipulated by someone with root access, anyone can manipulate that file.  I checked the permissions and the shares all have either group(which, btw, everyone has as their secondary group) level access or have no group restrictions(the temp folder).  We changed all the users to have the group associated with the shares as their primary group and that had mixed success.  Sometimes it would work, sometimes not.  We upgraded to samba 2.2.6 to see if that fixed any of the problems, but no dice.  Keeping everyone as root is not an acceptable option.

Anyone have any ideas now?

  We have a Redhat 7.2 server running(we think) samba 2.2.  We updated 3 Win2K
  machines from SP2 to SP3 and now we have some problems.  While they all can
  browse, read and write to samba shared directories, they cannot manipulate
  any open files in them.  We do have one other Win2K machine that works with
  no problems but I cannot find any differences in its setup and the other

  I checked the log file for one of the pc's and it is filled with errors:
  PANIC: internal error
  [(time/date)] smbd/nttrans.c:call_nt_transact_inctl(1798)
    call_nt_transact_ioctl: Currently not implemented.
  [(time/date)] lib/fault.c:fault_report(40)

  We've tried uninstalling SP3 to no avail.  Anyone have any guesses?
