Possibly not, try
# store DOS attributes in extended attributes
ea support = yes
store dos attributes = yes
map readonly = no
map archive = no
map system = no
and make sure you have mounted the file system with the user_xattr
option. If you are running a RHEL5 based distribution then upgrading to
the samba3x is advisable anyway.
