This works

Its there.

Its there and accacible, however, when trying to open a txt files (with notepad on windows) on any of my shares, i get this error
http://img63.imageshack.us/img63/4163/16927840.png, i can open notepad and and then open the file (gpt.ini) manualy, this seems kind of strange. I tried the mount the share from linux and had no problem there.

This may be it, i havnt xattr in fstab, how do you set the posix:eadb thing?
Well i can the acls is not working 100%, some dirs i can change, but some i cant.
And in some dirs you se some users named like S-1-22-1-506.
