[Samba] Keeping file creation time on Samba file shares

I am managing an IT environment with a mixed populatiion of WindowsXP
clients, Win2000 servers and a fast growing number of Samba servers (both
Fedora and RedHat --- latest versions).
I have run into a problem when applications on the XP clients store data on
the Samba shares and the NTFS metadata "file creation time" is lost. For the
applications used, this metadata is critical to keep.
Does anyone know of a way to get the Samba machines to keep this Windows
file metadata, in particular the "file creation time"? Are there any
settings one can do in the Samba environments? Are there any additional
products available that one can install on the Samba machines to accomplish
this? Any hint, tips, tricks or information about available products (both
freeeware/shareware/commercial) will be *greatly* appreciated.
Best regards / Stefan
