XFS, Samba and folder permissions..

I'm currently hacking into the Buffalo Terrastation... its running XFS file system.. and is running Samba.

this is what I'm wanting to do..

the terastation is a member of the active directory domain.. I can see and use all of the user accounts.

I'm wanting to create a share.. and within that share have all the home directorys.. but I want to set permissions on each of the home directory folders to only allow those users.. the user accounts would HAVE to be the domain accounts..

is there a way with XFS to set the permissions for a domain account? Can XFS see the domain accounts? Would there be a way to write a script that could set the permissions?

if there is any easier way of doing this I'm all ears..
