assign new data partition to specific users

I have a new primary partition which I mounted to /mnt/data1. I want to assign specific users to have full access to it and also samba access from XP to this partition for data storage. What should I do in this case? Thanks a lot.

Might be easiest to create a new group and add those users to the group and give the new partition's directory 770 permissions. In samba you can specify which uses can access it fairly easily.
