You could enable ACLs and set permissions with those, using the normal
windows security dialog. There is a howto here:
Once ACLs are working, just set up permissions as you would on a windows
If you do not want to use ACLs you could use the options in smb.conf:
write list = (users or groups who can write to the folder)
valid users = (users or groups who can access the folder)
You will probably have more flexibility using ACLs
Hope that helps
