[CentOS] Permissions question

My www directory is owned by "apache" and the group is "todd" and the
permissions are 775.
My Windows computers use Samba and they log into Linux with "todd".
Under the www directory there are various directories which may have a
group belonging to a user e.g. "viewpoint". Using this example, there
is a directory under www (acutally called httpd), "viewpoint" that is
owned by "apache" and is a member of the "viewpoint" group. "todd" is
also a member of the "viewpoint" group.
Now this is the problem I do not know how to correct: if "todd" using
Samba creates a directory in "viewpoint", the owner and group is "todd"
with 755 permissions. Now if the "viewpoint" user tries to write to the
directory, he does not have adequate permissions.
Maybe I have not setup the owners and groups correctly. maybe there is
something I need to do with how Samba interacts with the server.
Any suggestions will be appreciated...
