[Samba] Meaning of user.DOSATTRIB values

I'm using Samba 3.0.24 in a LAN with Windows-only clients
(Win2000/WinXP), and I've set it up to store DOS flags in extended
attributes to make users happy:
ea support = yes
map archive = no
map system = no
map hidden = no
store dos attributes = yes
Now I was having a look at the current attributes in all my shared
files, and was wondering about the mapping between those values and
their "Windows meaning". I guessed most of them (and their possible
combinations), but some are still a mistery to me; can anyone please
confirm and/or complete my guesses?
user.DOSATTRIB="0x0" = no dos flag is set (is this the same as no
extended attributes at all?)
user.DOSATTRIB="0x1" = readonly
user.DOSATTRIB="0x2" = hidden
user.DOSATTRIB="0x20" = archive
user.DOSATTRIB="0x10" = what's this?? If applied to a file, makes it
appear in Windows clients as being a folder!
user.DOSATTRIB="0x6" = system file?
I googled around but couldn't find anything, so I think this information
can be useful to many.
