I asked this question yesterday and got some really good answers that I will
be able to use later.  My problem was that I did not ask the question in an
exact enough way.

Here is what I am trying to do:

I have a share on my Samba server called art.  The directory is owned by the
user root and the group tech doc.  I have set the permissions like this on
the directroy:

drwxrwxr_x  That is I want root to have read, write, execute.  I want the
tech doc group to have read, write, execute and I want all the orther users
to have read, write.

I have these permissions set on the directory art.  Is there a way to
configure my smb.conf so that any file that gets created in or copied to
this directory to have these permissions and, if possible, to be owned by
the above user and group?
