new files are read only on share for everyone  except owner/creator  MAC OS X 10.6.7

LittleFuzzy asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
    I have 3 Macs networked in my office. All are running OS X 10.6.  I have one which holds the share drive.  I created sharing only users accounts for the other two computers.  I have given them read+write on the folder in the system preferences  file sharing dialog box.  In Finder the share folder permissions have read+write next to each user.
      New files created are read only for the other two users.  If I change the everyone permission from read only to read+write on the individual file it stays that way even with additional editing.  How can I get new files to be read+write for everyone ?
     I have seen others addressing this issue but I haven't seen a solution I can understand. Thanks in advance for any help .
