Group permission in samba

Hi dears,
I am new member here. I am using fedora6. I am facing some problems about group permission in samba server. I describe bellow:

please consider the following situation:
There is a folder named "drawing".
There are two groups named "working" and "preliminary".
There are four members as james,smith,moon and mical.
james and smith has a primary group named "working".
moon and mical are also member of "working" group but they(moon,mical) are not primary member .

If i give the command as follows:
chgrp -R working [folder path]
chmod -R 775 [folder path]

then james and smith can have fullaccess but moon and mical get read and execute permission only.
That means only primary member of the group "working" can have full access not rest of the members
of that group "working" .
I want to give full access all the member of "working" group, they may be primary group or not, that
does not matter.
how can i solve this problem?

Can help me anybody please?


group, permission, primary, samba
