[Samba] Help with setting permissions for W2k box to samba

My apologies in advance if this is an obvious question, but I've googled and
checked in my copy of the Official Samba-3 HOWTO and it's not working the
way I think it should.  Perhaps some kind soul can point me in the right
direction.  Thanks.

When I use W2k's set security on a DIRECTORY (right click on the directory,
properties, security tab) I cannot set the permissions for owner (user) to
read only; (I can set everyone and group to read/only); looking at the
permissions on the server they're not being set for user;

I can set permissions correctly for a FILE, but not for DIRECTORIES

Bonus problem: (I think I know the answer, but I'll ask)

Is there anyway to make a file/folder undeletable to a W2K user without
write-protecting the parent directory? 


Version/OS:  Samba 2.2.8 on  Yellow Dog Linux on a Mac G3

	guest ok = Yes
	only user = No
	status = Yes
	nt acl support = Yes
	profile acls = No
	block size = 1024
