BTW: I just committed code to the new command line smbcacls
program in Samba 2.2 and HEAD (modify NT security descriptors
from the UNIX command line) to allow a user with sufficient
privillage to change the ownership of a file to an arbitrary user.
The NT docs say this is impossible, which has always bugged me as
it is even possible using the SeBackupPrivillage from a Win32 program.

Anyway, you can now do it from the UNIX command line :-) :-).

Hope this is useful,

Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
