Samba ACL Map Full Control = True?

Hey guys...quick question:

I have a Samba share on a SLES10/OES2 box mapped on several WinXP clients and I'm using SBS2003 to manage the security on the share. I currently have acl map full control = false set in my Samba config and because of this some users have been unable to delete files they need to delete.

I am debating turning that parameter to true, but theoretically that would cause Windows to map RWX permissions on Linux to full control on Windows, including the ability to change permissions and take ownership. I want users to have the ability to delete files if they need to, but I can't have users who are able to change permissions because that completely defeats the purpose of even having permissions.

Am I looking at this incorrectly/is this a tradeoff with using Samba/is there anything I can do to accomplish my goal?

Thanks in advance!!
