Did you mount the file system with ACL and EA support?

	mount -o rw,acl.user_xattr /dev/sdc6 /mnt

If the kernel has ACLs support and the file system has been mounted with ACLs 
enabled, AND Samba has been linked with the libacls library there will be 
ACLs support. If you miss any of these steps there will be NO ACLs support.
