[Samba] Setting file and directory permissions using Windows Explorer

I am using Samba-3.0.10 on a Red Hat 9.0 server.  I compiled
Samba --with-acl-support.  I am using kernel linux-2.6.10 also compiled with
acl support, I believe.  The Samba server is the PDC with Windows 2K and XP
Pro machines joined to that domain.  I can authenticate as user root and map
drives to any share available.  As root I cannot change permissions.  When I
right-click on a directory and click properties, I click the Security tab.
When I click Apply to save changes, all boxes are blank.

I am so close, I think, at having a Samba server mimic a Window$ server.
This one feature still eludes me.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
