As far as I understood, samba just reuses the acess rights  given by the
Windows-Client when the directory is created. However, these access 
rights are logically "and"-ed with the parameter "directory mask", which
defaults to 755 - so: only the owner has write access.

directory mask = 775

should solve your problem.
More stronger is "force directory mode", which simply ignores the access 
rights proposed by the windows client.
