Setting the Permissions in windows is easy, browse to your server like 
so..start> run  \\server

right click share >  properties,> security tab -- if your unfamiliar 
with windows permissions I would read up on those..

being doable in linux,, hmm I'm sure it is but as I said I would create 
a share change windows permissions and look at them through linux, do 
that and you'll get the idea of what I'm talking about...

Someone can correct me here if I step out of bounds but I don't think 
the samba team has gotten this far yet to make the samba-tool ntacl tree 
practical to use..

as far as how the perms are shared is relative to file-system support, 
that's what the user_xattr support on the mount point is for.. so it 
adds the support for the Linux mount to store the NTACLS ,
