Unhappy Access Rights using Samba


I've set up Samba on an old IBM machine (with Mandrake 10) in order to create a file depository. I have another machine (also Mandrake 10) which I then use to connect to the IBM machine. Whenever I create a folder on the IBM machine from my other machine, the rights to the folder is always rwxr-xr-w (on the IBM) which of course causes problems when I want to copy files into that folder.

The solution is to use chmod on the IBM machine and assign 777 privileges on the newly created folder after which I am able to copy the files from the other machine onto the IBM machine...

How can I set up the user account on the IBM machine to automatically assign 777 access or at least 757 access to newly created folders (created from another machine...)
