Cool Changing file permissions on a SAMBA file share

Hope someone can help....

I've just installed SAMBA 2.2.3a for Redhat7.2, and everything fired up great first try.

I have winbind auth'ing smb, login, and system-auth, so creating and editing files on the samba share from a 2000 workstation works fine.

Where I come into problems is when I try to change permissions on the file by picking a new group from my domain. I thought I could just pick a new group, as long as I was a member, and replace it with the 'domain users' group.

Version 2.2.2 had an 'NT ACL Support' option, that may have done what I needed, but is no longer supported in 2.2.3a.

Does anyone know how to change the permissions?
