Samba/MS Access Files

Hi --

I'm trying to move an MS Access database (.mdb file) from an
MS Windows-based server to a Linux-based server running Samba.
Multiple users on Win98-based workstations can open the database
when it is hosted on the Windows server.  However, when the
database is moved to the Linux server and the same users attempt
to do the same thing only the first user can open the database.
When another user attempts to open it, Access complains that
there are too many users.  The help info says that the number
of users is limited to 255.  We only have 2.  Can anyone give me
any information on this problem and/or point me to where I can
find such info?

Thanks for any input.
