[Samba] File Permissions

I have set up Samba and got it to integrate with our existing windows
2000 domain, obtaining users list from our PDC. I'm currently bringing
over win 2k users from roaming profiles onto Terminal Services and I'm
copying their profile to the Samba server. The problem I'm getting is
file permissions. If I copy the file over when I'm the administrator,
the file owner will be administrator thorough even if I change it on the
root file of the profile. Can anyone therefore tell me how to change the
owner on all the files beneath the root profile folder. I think
basically what I'm asking is whether all files can inherit permissions
from its parent??
Thank You
