We are in the middle of testing debian squeeze 64 bits with samba 3.5.5 and are running into some questions:

1) Is this solution OK with windows 7 "out of the box" (ie no hacking/modifications to do on the pc) ? I have tested it seems so but I would like a confirmation.

2) Despite massive googling, I have not found a correct smb.conf configuration to change ACL statuses on shares (or even subfolders/files) via a windows based mmc (xp or vista). Yes, the IT people are not into SWAT or Webmin. It is stated possible. Are there any pointers or special issues I have missed with this version?

Thanks in advance,

Best Regards,
