Hello and Welcome to LinuxQuestions,

By Googling for it. That should be your first resource, nearly 90% of the questions new Linux users have can be solved by searching Google. In doing this you will learn a lot more then if we provide you a ready to go solution. Have a look at these links that Google turned up:
Chapter 8. Access Control Lists
8.2. Setting Access ACLs

Kind regards,

Hi welcome to LQ.

To enable acl in RHEL5 , acl is applied on a file system.

So in /etc/fstab , the 4th coloumn is the option field.

In the option field just add the acl after a comma on which partition you want to apply.
Now you have remount the partition for effect by following command.

mount -o remount <partition>
OR it will take effect on next reboot...
