We have a HowTo about setting up file shares in the Wiki:


There we'll describe how to configure permissions in general. You can 
set them through Windows now and use all Windows specific ACLs.

So I'd recommend to have a look at the HowTo and check if everything is 
working properly. And for questions about setting specific ACLs, the 
Windows documentation/forums are very helpful (it was at least for me, 
as for the last 15 years I set ACLs only on Linux and I'm still 
sometimes confused with the Windows ACLs :-)).
