[Samba] [CSI] smb.conf share definition "force group =" option

I'm using it here in samba 3.0.1 and it is working allright
path = "/home/samba/shares/files"
valid users = @samba
force group = samba
write list = user1 user2 @group1 @group2
read list = @group3
Setting a 0777 in a directory is something really insecure.
The above is secure only if you DONT have users in samba group
logging into your machine. They should use just use samba.
