chmod, user access rights

I believe following question is in right place..newbie section..

I've set up samba server, and everything works just fine, except I'm not so familiar with linux nor user access I need a bit of help here.

Here is "share" structure:
'/data' is shared foder
'/data/base' is folder inside shared folder
'/data/base/gk' - is a sample directory, with a lot of files inside..

What I need is:
1. Deny all users to create and delete folders and files inside '/data' or inside any subfolders
2. Allow valid users to access and modify only files inside '/data/base/' and all subfolders
3. Allow automatic creation of temp files inside '/data/base/' and all subfolders (they are created when user access '/data/base/gk/somefile', and deleted when no one is accessing them)

I appreciate any help!

I would suggest to install swat. Thats a web administration tool for samba. That way it is easyer to manage users and rights.
