[Samba] administering permissions via Windows 2003 Server

We have a Linux Release 9 FIle Server with which we are having major
problems controlling file permissions. Even though a directory may have 777
permisions when any attempt to change/add permissions on this directory
(via computer management by admin in Server 2003)  this just results in
'access denied' message even though we have full ownership.

We also have a WIndows 2000 terminal server and both Windows servers are
Domain Controllers.

Can you advise as how to find out if the problems are with Linux
Server/Samba or with Windows?
