Have you read the Samba-HOWTO-Collection.pdf that ships with Samba-3?
It has a chapter called "File, Directory and Share Access Controls".

IF there are problems with lack of clarity or inadequacy of information
please tell me so I can fix this before Samba-3 ships.

Yes, if you have administrative rights.

CUPS is very well documented in the Samba-HOWTO-Collection.pdf. If there
is a p[roblem with this documentation please let me know. I want to fix
this before Samba-3 ships.

How long is a piece of string Marc? What would you like it to do?

The Samba-HOWTO-Collection is being published by Prentice Hall as a book.
It will be on the bookshelves by late October. It will have a detailed
chapter called "Fast Start: Cure for the Impatient" that has losts of
fully documented worked examples for all sorts of server configurations.
This chapter will be made open source 4 months after the book ships. It
will then be added to the CVS code tree and will eventually appear in the
Samba-3 packages.

Yes. I have spent over 5 months working on this, that's how the HOWTO got
to where it is. Is it good enough yet?
