[Samba] Creating a group share

I have a Samba PDC (3.x) running in a OpenSUSE 10.2 system. The
authentication backend is Open LDAP.
I want to create a group share (WTCCC) which should be accessible to a
group of users (belonging to a group called WTCCC). The users' possess
this group as their secondary group (NOT primary).
And the share folder would have its gid bit set, so all the writes to
the folder would be accessible further by only people belonging to
WTCCC. Also I want a default umask of 770 for the shared folder too.
Could someone suggest a share configuration that can do these?
Currently, I have
comment = JIAGEN project share
path = /export/newWTCCC
valid write list = +WTCCC
# acl check permissions = true
# acl group control = yes
browseable = Yes
# read only = No
inherit acls = Yes
force group = +WTCCC
writable = yes
create mask = 0660
directory mask = 0770
But as soon as I change the ownership of /export/newWTCCC to
root:WTCCC, the users are not able to access the share. But if I have
the force group enabled, everyone is able to access the share (as it
forces everyone to belong to the group, which should not be the case).
