You're running RHEL3. RHAS3 has native POSIX ACL support, so RHEL3
should have, too.

Do 'ldd /path/to/smbd-binary'. You should see both:

libattr.so.1 => /lib/libattr.so.1 (0x00387000)
libacl.so.1 => /lib/libacl.so.1 (0x00716000)

or suchlike.

what does 'mount' show you for the partition for which you think you
have ACL support? E.g., on my test rig:

/dev/hda10 on /m type ext3 (rw,acl,user_xattr)
