[Samba] Trouble Symbolic Linking

I am running Samba on a FC2 X86_64 machine and I have one directory that
needs to be accessible by two different groups (each group has its own
folder) of people.  Instead of creating another share and subscribing
all of each group into another group, I would rather just create the
folder in one directory and soft (symbolic) link it to the directory.
The directory structure works as desired in the shell.  However, when I
try to do that in samba, the folder where the soft link should be does
not show the soft link.  These link points to a file under another mount
on another share on the system.  I have set follow symlinks and follow
wide to yes.  Samba version is samba-3.0.10-1.fc2.

Anyone have any ideas?
