[Samba] Problem with group access to shares

I appreciate the reply.  I will check log Monday at work.

I used to do a separate share for EACH subdirectory, but it got to be too 
much overhead.  I have about 40 different shares I would have to create. 
The sample I gave was just a very simple example.  The real thing is far 
more involved.
