The fstab below shows that your file systems are NOT mounted with ACL support.
To gain ACL support you need:
1. A the ACL and EA functionality in the Linux kernel
2. To mount the file systems with ACL and XATTR support
3. Samba compiled and linked with the ACL and XATTR libraries
An example fstab entry to mount a file system with ACL and XATTR support is
LABEL=/export/1 /export/1 ext3 defaults,acl,user_xattr 1 2
