Dear All,

I am running samba 2.2.7-5  on a RH 8.0 box with 2.4.20-18 kernel and
I am trying to migrate a Win2K Server to Samba.
The samba RPM has --with-acl-support activated.
I manually add all the net users into the samba box using the command

useradd -s /bin/false -d /dev/null -m username

and then I transfer then into samba. Having specified:

workgroup = our_workgroup
netbios name = Server Name
security = user
encrypt passwords = yes
nt acl support = yes
path = ..
valid users = ....

in the smb.conf and creating the appropriate "top level" shares with the
corresponding users
everything works very well. Users can have where they suppossed to.
The old Win2K server has a very different structure looking something

However, I can not change share permisions from a Win2K client (or WinXP
