[Samba] Problem Administering Permissions on Samba Server

I have a Samba-3 server on a Linux Fedora server configured as a member
server on a Windows NT domain.

Winbind works great.  I can do a getent group or getent passwd and it will
list the users and groups of the domain.
I can also set permissions on the Samba shares on the Linux server using
chmod or chown etc.  I have the Official Samba-3 HOWTO and Referencd Guide.
The HOWTO Guide says you should be able to set permissions on Samba share
using NT Server Manager and File Manager on NT/2000/XP systems.  When I try
to do this I can see the permissions, I can add a user from my domain but
when I hit O.K. I get an Access Denied message.  The HOWTO Guide says that
"if the parameter nt acl support is set to false, any attempt to set
security permissions will fail with an "Access Denied" message.  Alas, I
don't know what this means.  I have no parameter like this in my smb.conf
nor can I find on in the smb.conf man page.

Any tips will be appreciated.
