I do realise my howto is very Red Hat specific, however there are plenty
of other distributions that don't have ACL support out of the box
(Slackware, Gentoo, others?). Besides, merely having ACLs enabled in the
file system is not enough - you have to understand the limitations of
POSIX ACLs as well as how Samba's ACL support works, which is the other
main point of the howto.
