As Administrator, I want to create a new user folder in the [users] or
[profiles] share and set all the relevant acl and permissions so that he or
she can access/use it.
Another example, as Administrator I am going to copy some files and folders
from a complete differrent location (a workstation perhaps) to a users
directory in the [users] share and want to make sure that later on he/she
can access it.

I tried that and when I am the owner of a directory, I can NOT set the
ownership to some other user if I want to.
Ship your Linux to me please?

I have read those now and I will try that solution.
Altough it is not a very "nice looking" solution in my opinion.
