Hi List,

The Samba Howto Collection http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-HOWTO-Collection/AccessControls.html#id2611229 says:

"When the set user or group ID bit (s) is set on a directory, then all files created within it will be owned by the user and/or group whose `set user or group' bit is set. "

while i cannot repoduce this behavior the wikipedia says:

"The setuid permission set on a directory is ignored on UNIX and Linux systems "

either there is an error in the howto, or maybe its just time for me to start the weekend ;-)
