[Samba] Best Resource for Windows ACL Mapping

Can anyone recommend a good "how to" for mapping Windows ACLs onto a 
Samba Share? I have a very specific Windows permission setting that I'm 
trying to create and I can't quite figure out how to do it.

In specific, I'm using an application that doesn't respond optimally to 
read only files unless the Security settings come up with just the 
following "Advanced" properties:

List Folder/Read Data  Yes
Read Attributes  Yes
Read Extended Attributes  Yes
Read Permissions  Yes

Everything else must be unchecked.

This is my observation from seeing how the application deals with Read 
Only files on a local NTFS filesystem. My assumption is that I must 
recreate the exact same permission on files stored on the Samba share.

Ideally, somebody has a chart that displays in one column "desired 
Windows ACLS" and in a second column what you have to do to create this 
with Samba?
