[Samba] Retry: RedHat, XFS, and ACL Support

Purpose: Create a File Server that can replace our windows file server.
Kernel 2.4.18-18 SGI XFS 1.2.0
1 for the filesystem ext3
1 for the shares using xfs
Most of the threads and articles I read about doing this told me that I
had to recompile the kernel for acl support. Then I found a post that
mention that XFS has built in ACL support. Which it does. Currently I am
trying to get samba to work with the acl's
What I have done so far:
Installed all related rpm's
Set Up Windbind
Tested account synchronization
Set up shares
Set ACL's for share root dir through linux
The permisions that I set through linux work perfectly. The people who
should have access to a particular share do and those who shouldn't don't.
As I understand it you should then be able to set permisions on files
within those directories as if they were on a windows server, but the
permissions that show up are
unix_group 109 (server\unix_group 109)
I may not have configured samba with acl support
So I went back and tried running that line.
checking whether to support ACLs... checking for acl_get_file in -lacl...
checking for ACL support... (cached) no
Now I'm not sure where to go from here. Any ideas?
