I am having a problem with a samba share file system.

The file system will work normal on any windows computer. If create a file any other system "included mac" can view and edit it that file

The problem is: when creating a file on a mac "mac osx 10.5.8" the file show as read only and only the mac user that created that file can edit it

If the file is opened by a windows device it will show as read-only

The samba conf is :

        path = /media/saviosilvatest
        writeable = yes
        browseable = yes
        guest ok = yes
        valid users = games, proxy, saviosilva
        create mask = 0777
        directory mask = 0777
        read only = no
        force create mode = 0777 
        force directory mode = 0777

Thanks for your help
