[Samba] Samba versus Windows permissions

I'm running into a permissions problem on a share.  If I set the g+x on 
a file, it sets it as a system file in Windows.  If I set o+x on a file, 
  Windows sees it as a hidden file.  This is a department share with a 
number of users accessing it.  When I don't have the group bit for 
executable set, some files will not work, like Access .mdb files and 
some .ntf files used for a CD labeling program.  This is on Samba 3.0.10 
and both Win9x and Win2K machines.

Is there a way to set these files as executable with out them being 
system or hidden files?
