[Samba] Changing permissions in WinXP interface of not owned files... Only with root

I always used the root account if I had to change permissions of files
which I was not the owner of. Now I tried to set root as invalid user and
gave all privileges to the user sysadm. But I was not allowed to change
the permissions (but to take ownership). Did I miss something or is root
still the only way to change permissions when using a windows box?
