Strange + sign after permissions on all files and directories

I have a Debian machine that I noticed has some strange behaviour. I
noticed that when I do a listing of the files on the machine it appears

drwxr-xr-x+ 102 root     root         8192 Jan  5 09:54 etc
drwxr-xr-x+   2 root     root            6 Apr 25  2002 floppy
drwxr-xr-x+  44 root     root         4096 Jan  2 17:10 home
drwxr-xr-x+   2 root     root            6 Apr 25  2002 initrd
drwxr-xr-x+   6 root     root         8192 Dec 29 15:34 lib
drwxr-xr-x+   2 root     root            6 Feb  8  2002 mnt

All files seem to have a strange + sign at the end of the permissions
which would normally mean Access Control List in Solaris. I noticed
also that when I try to run crontab -e as root it denies me access

You (root) are not allowed to use this program (crontab)
See crontab(1) for more information

I am wondering if it has something to do with the + sign and some
sort of Access Control list denying root access? How can I get
it so that this Debian machine no longer displays the + sign next
to any directory or file.

Any immediate help would be appreciated.
