folder permissions

I have samba as a PDC, clients can log in fine, I have a share which contains all the folders and files that we store data to... is there a way I can set the permissions using the windows interface on the security tab, rather than doing it on the Samba PDC? it keeps giving me an error saying i dont have permissions to edit the security when i change things. even though i log into the client machine as root

Nope. Linux/Window$ permissions don't agree with each other at all. You can't effect the PDC permissions from a client, save using something like putty to SSH into the PDC and sign in as root. The security set by a client will be completely ignored by the Samba server. The only way to change the permissions is to do it from the PDC.
