Change Linux Folder Permissions using Windows 2003


I have set up a new Linux 5 server as a file server on our Windows 2003 network. I have it set up so that Samba authenticates users based on ADS. In Windows I have logged on as the administrator and changed folder permissions on the Linux server by right-clicking on the network share and clicking on security and then making the appropriate changes. No problem there.

I have five users in the orgnization that I have in a group called Office Administrators. I have added that group to the security of each shared Linux folder giving them full control. Here is the problem. When any of these five users try to change folder permissions using the same security tab in Windows, they get "Unable to save permission changes...access denied."

Anyone have any ideas?
