[Samba] What to do for ACL support?

Hi Alexander,

ACLs are supposed to work out the box on Mandrake 8.2 with XFS (they 
worked out the box on 8.1), but I myself have been having problems with 
getting this working (stock 8.2 with win2kpro clients)... I still need 
to test on a  non-production box ... maybe tonight.

Sylvestre reported getting this to work with XP clients on kernel 
2.4.18-4mdk or so with the acl-2.0.0 (duing beta), 8 March according to 
mail. Sly, have you tried on 8.2 release? From Windows 2000?

I haven't managed to set acl's from the command line using acl, which 
may indicate problems with the shipped kernel ...
