I am have a little problem here.
I am trying to view MS office documents under Win NT, that are stored on an NFS drive that is mounted to a samba machine, which shares them to NT.
This method seems to work fine for all other documents, except office ones.  When I try to view them  I get an error message that I do not have the rights to do this operation.
My smbuser ID numbers are the same as the ID's for the documents owners on the NFS drive.
I am using samba 2.0.7
Any help would be appreciated
