It provides it, but only half of it. Did "chmod g+s /mnt" and "chmod u+s  
/mnt" but when I create a file with "ftpadmin" through a ftp the file has  
ftpadmin:wheel (Parent directory belongs to root:wheel). Maybe it cannot  
change to root ? That would be strainge, seing how samba can do it (then  
again samba has a module for this)

Already did that.
