I realise this sort of question comes up quite a bit and I have read and tried a number of the solutions suggested with no real results.
I have Samba 2.2.5 running on SuSE 8.1 acting as the PDC and file server for with a number of win2k machines. I would like the windows machines to be able to change permissions on the files that reside on the Samba share? How do I accomplish this?
I have tried all sorts of configurations and right now I have everything set to 777 as follows:
create mask = 0777
force create mode = 0777
force security mode = 0777
directory mask = 0777
force directory mode = 0777
force directory security mode = 0777
force unknown acl user = 0777
I had assumed that this would enable anyone to do just about anything. However, when I try to change a permission on a file or directory on the Samba share from the windows machines, I get an error saying I am unable to save permission changes.
The idea was that there would be a public folder that was open and unrestricted (to and extent) and once I figured out how to deal with the permissions issue, I would start to tighten up the settings.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
