| If you want to use ACLs you need:
| 	1. ACLs support in your Linux kernel
| 	2. File systems formatted correctly
| 	3. To mount the file systems correctly in /etc/fstab
| 	4. Samba to be compiled and linked with the acls-devel libraries
1-4 OK at my side, except, that I'm using Mandrake and XFS. I just had
some nasty problems with acl support and non-XFS filesystems in the
past, then I've found XFS and it seems, that I get used to it a little
bit too much.

| 	/dev/hda6       /export reiserfs        acl,user_xattr 1 2
| I run SuSE SLES8, 8.2 and 9.0 with ACLs support without any problems.

I don't need any replication from Windows, as my Windows machines are
used as clients exclusively (well except some shared printers), all my
servers are Unix (Linux) thanks God.
