I've included some information from our online support database related 
to your situation.  I think this is all you need.

If you have further questions or comments, please let us know.

Samba 2.0:
DAVE v2.1 will work with Samba v2.0 if the filesystem flag on SAMBA is 
not set to NTFS.  If your installation requires your filesystem flag to 
be set to NTFS, please contact our customer support department for a test 
version of DAVE Client.
