Are you able to select a new permission (user or group) yet after you 
apply, the perm. goes away?
If so that is the problem I am having and have found no resolution.

I have the same problem w/ 2.2.8 and 3.0

        Subject:        [Samba] Samba 2.2.8a file permissions not working

We have upgraded from Samba 2.2.7a to 2.2.8a.  We have samba running 
our our two UNIX file servers, one is Solaris 8 and the other RedHat 
Linux 7.3.  Samba was compiled as follows:

configure --prefix=/opt/samba --with-acl-support --with-quotas

Right now it doesn't looks like changing file/folder permissions are 
working from W2K.  When we right click on a file/folder and go to the 
security tab it show the current file permissions fine.  But when you 
try to change them it is being ignored.  No error messages are being 
shown.  No matter what we do no changes are happening on the UNIX side. 
  This occurs on the Linux file server too.
This did work in 2.2.7a and compiled the same way as above.
Is there something different in 2.2.8a, or is this a bug????
