Samba record locking & PC db's

Fellow Samba-meisters,

	I'm wondering if anyone can share real-world experience running PC
database apps (like M$ Access) with database files shared from a samba
server.  How well has the record locking proven to work?  I will be
setting up a small office network for a client w/ a Linux server running
samba as a file/print server and 4 or 5 Win95 clients running Office97
	This is slightly off-topic, but I was wondering if anyone could
offer a comparison of samba-sharing PC db files or using a C/S setup with
something like PostgreSQL as a backend.
