[Samba] NT Security tab changes

Do I need to patch ACL support into the Linux kernel just to allow users 
to change permissions on files hosted on the Samba 2.2.5 server? All I 
really need is to allow users to set read/write/execute on files. Right 
now, I don't have an ACL-patched kernel installed on the server.

My users can see the security tab when they check the preferences on 
Samba-hosted files, but they can't change anything, even if they own the 
file. If the check or un-check a box, it just reverts back as soon as 
they click the Apply button. If I change the file perms using chmod at 
the server console, logged in as the user in question, it works fine...

All users have Windows 2000 Pro (not sure what SP). Samba is 
authenticating to OpenLDAP, and I'm using nss_ldap. Here's the relevant 
section of smb.conf:

         ldap server = localhost
         ldap port = 389
         ldap suffix = "o=internet"
         ldap admin dn = "cn=Manager,o=internet"
         ldap ssl = no
	workgroup = IS
	netbios name = THOR
	server string = Thor File Server
	security = server
	dos filemode = yes
	encrypt passwords = Yes
	log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
	max log size = 0
	socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
	dns proxy = No

	comment = Private File Storage
	path = /usr/local/fileshare/home
	read only = No
