It sounds to me like you are needing ACLs (Access Control Lists).  ACLs are a =
subset of EAs.

Samba does support ACLs, but the underlying OS and filesytem must support them =
as well.

I have it working with SuSE 8.0 and the XFS filesytem (considered experimental =
by SuSE.)

You might want to repost with the specific OS and filesystem you are using.
