permissions on samba shares

As a newbie I am confused and bewildered by this.
I have an nt4 pdc, 70 98se clients, 2 redhat 6.2 servers both running samba.
I have upgraded samba to 2.2.7a on the RH servers as i want to tighten security. security level = domain is now set up on samba and it sucessfully uses winbind to extract user info from the pdc.

So to my question, how the hell do I set permissions on the samba shares. i was under the impression i could use nt acls to do this from the pdc once i was using winbindd. I have tried simply adding
write list = @groupname
where groupname is an nt global group. doesn't work.

any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Can you print out your smb.conf so we can see what we are starting with?

Hi pjedmond

sorry to take so long to get back.
I worked it out. setting the group name as

valid users = DOMAIN+groupname

where + is the winbind separator

this works but i am still in the dark as to how to assign diferent permissions to different groups on the same share.
