Samba Users and groups with different access?


Hello,
I'm trying to make a NAS for my friends but I can't get it to work the way I want and hope you could help me out.

I have samba working and no problem there but all users get the same permission to the server and I want to have two different groups of access.

I want all users to have there own home folder(/mnt/hdd/home/) with full access, and a restricted to 20 GB each(the restriction not to important).
The group friends have read access to the folder /mnt/hdd/friends/ and write access to /mnt/hdd/upload/.
The group workgroup have full access to /mnt/hdd/work/.
And last the group/user root that have full access to everything in /mnt/hdd/.

Have a look at the smb.conf parameter valid users (it does group work as well) in combination with standard *nix permissioning on the underling directories

Thanks, think I'm on the way to get it working.
But I'm not sure how I should set up the *nix permissions for this to work. =/

Think the smb.conf file will be something like this. (Haven't tested it yet.)
Code:
[friends]
comment = friends share
path = /mnt/hdd/friends
hide do files = yes
guest ok = no
browsable = yes
read only = yes
valid users = @friends
host allow = 192.168.1.0/24
hosts deny = ALL

[upload]
comment = friends upload
path = /mnt/hdd/upload
hide do files = yes
guest ok = no
browsable = no
writable = yes
valid users = @friends
host allow = 192.168.1.0/24
hosts deny = ALL

[work]
comment = Workgroup
path = /mnt/hdd/work
hide do files = yes
guest ok = no
browsable = yes
writable = yes
valid users = @work
host allow = 192.168.1.0/24
hosts deny = ALL

[root]
comment = root
path = /mnt/hdd/
hide do files = no
guest ok = no
browsable = yes
writable = yes
valid users = smbroot
host allow = 192.168.1.2
hosts deny = ALL
