Me thinks your teacher was telly porkies. Samba 3 can not act as an Active Directory. You can do some policies but this has to be done though an NT 4 syle policy file. ACL will work aslong as the underlying filesystem can support them.
If you want to find out how samba works, I suggest you buy a book or look at the Samba-HOWTO.

	 ok i was told by my teacher that the newer version of samba i.e. version 3 will be a perfect clone of  active directory and it will have all the features that active directory domains have.
	so tell me if this is true. can a samba version 3 server act like a ACTIVE directory based windows domain controller?
	and also if u can tell me that the domain policies defined by a windows active directory domain controller will remain undisturbed if it is replaced by a samba server.
	like if i was restricted from accessing the networl folder of one of my teacher which contains the question paper for  tomorrow exam , will i still be unable to access it
	or the permissions will go crazy and i would be able to access it.
	plz inform me more about how the concept of a active directory domain and permissions have been incorporated or not incorporated into the new version of samba
	waiting for ur replies
