[Samba] Problem setting ACLs on files/folders... plz help!

This is actually a Mac OS X Server, and we didn't build the kernel
ourselves. It's out of the box the way Apple configures it.
The results of smbd -b | grep -i acl shows: HAVE_NO_ACLS.
That can't be good, can it?
I don't have "nt acl support = yes" in my smb.conf, but that's probably not
gonna help me since HAVE_NO_ACLS is set.
Am I just pretty screwed given the Samba that comes with Mac OS X Server?

Did you build acl support into your kernel?
When you type smbd -b|grep -i acl, what kind of output do you get- you sure
the acl support is compiled in properly into samba?
What kind of output do you get in your samba logs when and before you get
the access denied messages?
Finally, I dont see any "nt acl support = yes" line in your smb.conf
file-- why dont you add it in?

Access is denied."
