I dont understand what you want? If you have a directory there already, 
you can change ownership with chmod, if you want all the files in the 
directory, you can chmod -R /dir/name/*
Files created by users will be owned by them, unless you use force user.
If you connect to the files through windows, you can set ownership and 
permissions through the normal windows method.
