[Samba] Changing timestamp when copying files to Samba share

Is there some way of doing this? When I copy a file from Windows XP onto
a Samba share, I want it to reflect the current time, instead of
preserving the windows "Date Modified" time. This works by default in
Unix. Windows preserves the timestamp by default.
'dos filetimes' and 'dos filemode' in smb.conf don't seem to do the
trick. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance for any help.
Here's my setup:
Samba 3.0.7 running on Gentoo Linux system.
Output from 'testparm' command (with small edits to protect the innocent):
workgroup = WINDOWS
security = DOMAIN
log level = 4
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
max log size = 50
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
dns proxy = No
wins server = <winsIPaddress>
passdb expand explicit = No
idmap uid = 10000-20000
idmap gid = 10000-20000
force group = mygroup
create mask = 0664
directory mask = 0775
inherit owner = Yes
comment = My Folder
path = /web/virtual/htdocs/myfolder
valid users = WINDOWS\medfield
read only = No
