MS Office 4.3

It's not a Samba issue, but a Win95 issue. The program 'msoffice.exe',
which is the office toolbar, runs from the remote drive, and causes the 
error. Try copying msoffice.exe to a local directory, and run it from
there. Put the ini file (msoffice.ini) in %windir% (if it's not already
there). This fix removes the error, and everything runs like you would
expect. A side effect is that the toolbar runs faster. :-)
