When users create a file on this share, the files are created with 
permission's equal to 764 (rwxrw-r--).  I want the permission's to be 760 
(rwxrw----).  How can I accomplish this for this share?  Here is my .conf 
for the global and this share.  My version of SAMBA is 3.0.20b-3 on 
openSUSE 10:

Thanks in advance,
