Is it possible to force a particular user/group to own files when using

I have tried force user without any success.

What I need to be able to do is have the system administrators connect to
the user's account and then have the use access files placed in their
directory.  When I do this currently, the owner is root and the group is
domain admins.

Following is how the share is configured.

        comment = Linda Bell's Home Directory
        browseable = Yes
        valid users = mo+linda,mo+jay,mo+karen
#       write list = mo+linda,mo+jay
#       force user = linda
        create mode = 0770
        directory mode = 0770
        writeable = Yes
        admin users = mo+jay, mo+karen
        path = /home/linda

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
