We're running Office 97 and Samba (1.9.17p4) on various Windows95 PC's. 
 Our samba server is a Linux box (2.0.27) acting as a domain controller 
with roving profiles.  Everything seems to be fine as far as our systems 
go, with nary a problem to report.

Could it possibly be a Windows95 problem?  Any service packs installed? 
 Can you use Office 97 to another Windows95 PC's shared drive?
