Samba share permissions

I have created a bunch of samba shares with various permissions for different groups composed of different users. The users connect from Windows XP machines. All is well, however, when users create files (if they have write permission) then the files get created with the rights of that user. In this manner, certain users can not see their files even though it is intended that they can.

Is it possible to propegate rights from the main share directory to all files and folder created inside it?

Use sticky bit for the parent folder.

Google it for detail about "sticky bit"
