Samba/MS Dos Client/ Autocad R12

Dear all,

we've a Linux SAMBA server up and running. Everything works fine, 
except the connection to 2 old DOS machines running MS DOS 6.22,
MS Client and Autocad R12. 

Autocad R12 is not able to create and write files to the server,
reading files works fine. The message of autocad is "Unsufficient
disk space".

The DOS DIR-Command shows 0 bytes free, nevertheless there is
plenty of space on the server and it is possible to create files

In a Windows NT DOS Box on another machine the free space available 
on the server is displayed correctly.

Any hints on that?

Thanks in advance
