I guess my problem is related to how to file mode creation at a directory level.

force create mode = 0770

Thanks a lot, Josh. The "force create mode" solves the problem partially --- now the group members have full access to the files. However, for some unknow reason, the permission for "other" doesn't work. They still have read access. In addition, it doesn't work on subfolders either. Please see the following:
  bash-2.05# ls -ld share/
drwsrws--x  3 tech group1 512 Nov 29 13:50 share/
bash-2.05# cd share/
bash-2.05# ls -l
total 2
drwxr-sr-x  2 guest01 group1 512 Nov 29 13:51 a
-rwxrwxr--  1 guest01 group1   0 Nov 29 13:49 test.txt

  Any further sugestions?
