Windows Apps writing to Mac Share - default permissions to strict

I am trying to set the default permissions of applications on a Windows 7 writing files to my Mac Mini (Lion Server) and the shared filesystem.

Please look over this post where I explain my systems involved.

I would assume that there would be a way to keep the Windows apps to not assign such tight permissions.

Is Samba an option anymore with Lion? I guess it was jettisoned by Apple with Lion. I hate to go that direction since the share seems to be fine, it's just the default permissions that is causing me grief.
