Yes. I am successfully setting ACLs with Samba-3.0.0.

I have the ACLs patch in my kernel so that I can set ACLs on Linux files.
Setting ACLs on Shares does NOT AT ALL use kernel ACLS.

Please explain to me what part of the Samba-HOWTO-Collection.pdf, chapter
12 you can ont understand. Precisely what is the problem - I want to fix
it. I totally belive you that this chapter is not clear enough. What is
not working for you?

I do not understand what we are missing. I want to help you.

Please give us detailed, step-by-step instructions for how to reproduce
your problem.
