[Samba] Permissions problem - I am in the proper group but still
can't create files

I have a share created on my linux server. I can connect to it with the
"administrator" user just fine. I need to be able to create files and
directories with the administrator user, even in directories that are
not owned by administrator. administrator is in the users group.
Everything under the share is in the users group, and the group has
write permission. So why can't administrator create files?
If I chown the parent to administrator, then it works fine. But
administrator is in the group, and the group has write permission. So
why does it also have to be owned by administrator? I don't have this
issue on all my other linux servers, just this new one (CentOS 5.2).
Here is the folder I'm trying to create a file in:
drwxrwxr-x 2 root users 4096 Jan 28 11:10 foo
Here is the line from /etc/group:
And here is my samba share:
comment = /home/WWW-data
path = /home/WWW-data
read only = no
valid users = rps administrator
create mask = 0664
directory mask = 0775
force user = administrator
force group = nobody
Thanks for any help.
