[Samba] changing file permissions

If I want to make it to where a user cannot change his/her permissions 
on a file or directory, are 'nt acl support' and 'security mask' what I 
need to be using to do this?

For example, I have it set so that when a student saves his file or 
creates a directory, both he and the teachers can access it, but no one 
else can.  I want it to stay that way.  I don't want the student to be 
able to go to a Windows XP machine and right click the file/directory 
and change the permissions so that they can share information with other 

 From what I have read so far, the above two commands look like what I 
need to be working with.  Just wanted to check before I go do too much 
playing around.
