recursive smbcacls

	I know it could be done mounting the share with "cifs filesystem" and 
acting from the client via local calls to "setfacl" against the mounted 
remote files (using "find /folder -exec setfacl") but it just works if 
your server has unix extensions enabled. I cannot enable unix extensions 
because, some 2.6 linux kernel versions become confused with local 
uid/gid assignation when mounting CIFS shares.

( )

	So, I think my only chance is to use smbcacls.
	Can anybody help me?
	Thanks in advance!
