I'm looking for info on using posix acls in samba. I'd like them to
look and feel like nt acls. I'd like to use the windows client to set
the acls on the samba server. I've got the official samba 3 howto
book, but can't seem to figure things out from there.

specifically, in the past I've used a force group entry in combined
with create modes to keep shared files access to specific groups. I'd
like to see where posix acls might fit in here since I could
theoretically have a group of 'creators', a separate group of
'viewers', and a third group with 'read-write-delete' permissions.

any good writups on this? I'm using samba 3.x and redhat enterperise
ws 4 -- kernel 2.6.9-5 and samba-3.0.10-1.4E.
