Samba on Linux with no ACL's is making things tough

  Well, you just described the problems that ACLs on Multics were
designed to solve, and one which Unix perms didn't attempt to
address.  Darn!
  Can you put an smb server on a machine with ACLs? Solaris, HP-UX
and SGI at least have POSIX ACLs, which will suffice.  The team
is aware of the problem, but can't do much if the underlying OS
doesn't have the functionality...
