Permissions in Windows and Linux

Is there any additional information (other than the admin guide) as to how permissions work when a directory is accessible from both Windows and Linux?  (Our logins are all centralised through NIS.)

I'm seeing some very odd behaviour - for example, after I do any permission changes in Linux, when I go into the Windows permissions I get an error that the permissions were ordered incorrectly.  Then when I go into advanced permissions, there are a bunch of additional entries, many of which are for the same groups that were already there, but with “special permissions” checked instead.   And some of them are “Deny” entries.

Thank you!
