    IIRC Access Controll Layer, I think it's like permisions (for owner, group, "others", ext3fs has rwx (read, write, execute) permisions for the the 'groups'). If you don't have r permision you may read a file for instace, if you don't have write but only read you wont be allowed to write to that file.

    ACL is Access Control List, and provides a more extensible way of controlling permissions than the normal UNIX way. I described in another post above.

    It's just a really good thing to have to find out the canonical way of doing things.
