Excellent.  The only missing piece I would guess, is to make sure that 
your samba install contains ACL support.  I'd be really surprised if 
SuSE didn't compile it in, distros seem to enable every option in case 
you may need it some day.  My output looks as follows:

[root at carbon ~]# smbd -b |grep ACL

I believe that's all you need.  Beyond that, make sure you don't have 
any explicit denys in your smb.conf with regard to ACLs.
