Using ACLs with Samba 2.2.2 on a 2.4.10 Kernel

Hello out there again!

I have a problem with ACLs: I build Samba 2.2.2 with ACL support. ACLs are 
0.7.21 (from on a 2.4.10 Kernel. ACLs are working fine 
within Linux. When I connect to a Samba share from a Windows NT Workstation 
or Server, I only see the three standard acls representing world, group and 
owner. I have several files with acls for testing but non of this acls is 
seen from the remote Windows machine. Adding acls from Windows also doesn't 
work (no access).

When building Samba capabiltiy.h made a lot of definition errors. So I 
disabled capability.h for building - maybe this is the reason for my 
problems - but I have no idea for what capability.h is used :-o

My next step probably will be to use a 2.2.19 Kernel. But before - maybe 
somebody know what's going wrong.
