Folder rights on smb share

We have CentOS 5.5 server running samba.  A bunch of macs are connecting to it and accessing shares.  All the samba users also have real accounts.  There is a group admin who have full rights to everything (so I think).  I've added all the users to the admin group.

When a user creates a new directory within the file tree, only he or she can access it.  We need it so when a user creates anything new, all the other users with rights to the share have access to it.

There are configuration options for samba that influence that behavior. Look for directory mode or directory mask. It's probably set to 700, it needs at least 750 for the group to have read access.

What would the mask need to be for full control?
directory mask = 770         for the group
directory mask = 777         for everyone
