Hello !!

 When a user edits a file belonging to another user and then saves the 
file he becomes the owner of that file. Both users belong to the same 
group and the file can be read or written to by the group members. 
Server: Red hat 9, kernel 2.4.20-31.9, Samba 3.0.7, unix extensions 
Client: Red hat 9, kernel 2.4.20-31.9, shares mounted via smbfs or cifs 
(the same behaviour).

Is that all normal or did I do something wrong ?

I'll appreciate your comments and suggestions.

Best regards,
