Basic folder permissions question

Hi all,

I ve set up a samba file server with FC5 and smb 3.
I need all file and subfolders to have the same permissions:

I have
/deps/Design set to chmod 755 and chown root.Design

sometimes users copy files into /deps/Design and permissions go a bit wild.

How can I avoid this?

How can I get all files put into /deps/Design
to inherit the 755 and root.Design without adding

chmod -R 755 /deps/Design
chown root.Design /deps/Design

to cron.hourly?

I know that the GID should set the content ownership to root.Design, but does it work for the 755 too?

Thanks a mil

You need to set the user and permissions on new files in the samba setup:
Look in the section titled "Samba Share-level Administration"
