[Samba] setfacl:operation not supported

Kernel 2.4 can support ACLs, it's more a question of the FS you are
using (ext2 is ok if acl is properly installed).
Did you remount with root? Otherwise use sudo. Perhaps you could post
your mount-output.
By the way: use some other partition then "/" for testing, otherwise you
could end up in a mess!!!
Next question: /ide2 sounds like a mountpoint itself - check and remount
with acl-enabled. Perhaps you could post "ls -al /"

Kind regards,
