[Samba] Migrating data from W2K - losing Windows ACL's

I've been running some test data copying from a W2K box to our new Samba box
but have noticed that the assigned Windows ACL's are lost when copying.
The only ACL's specified are those assigned to the directory in Linux that
the data is being copied to.

Is there any way to retain the Windows ACL's? Either through an smb.conf
parameter or some other feature?

System config is Redhat ES 3 Taroon update 3 running Samba 3.0.11 compiled
with acl support. Mounted luns have ext3 filesystem and are mounted with acl

Any help/info appreciated.
