I think the problem is under control now. I misunderstood the section of
Samba-Guide that talked about WHERE to look at the efective file and
directory permissions. I mean, in XP, to reach the dialog where you have
the "Permissions", "Auditing" and "Ownership" tabs, you have to click on
the Advanced button in the Security tab. I was trying to set permissions
directly from the Security tab of the directory properties and apparently,
that doesn't work.
In the Advanced dialog, you have a far more detailed permission
definitions. Those are the ones that finally apply to the objects.

Thanks to all who answered... you helped me clarify what was happening.
