[Samba] Windows Filesharing Limitations

I've been trying to set up a server to fileshare to mac and windows 
clients using Netatalk and Samba. Basic setup and functionality works, 
but we have two lingering problems, both on the windows clients:

- can't change the user field
- can't change the group field

The windows client permissions dialog allows you to change it, but once 
you close and reopen it, the changes are gone.

Anyone ever encounter these limitations, and find the solution for them?
