Equivalents of Novell ROS and RWS ?

I am setting up my first production Samba/Linux server and so far I have
not found equivalent settings for Novell's ROS and RWS flags. 

I guess it's some combination of:

  share modes         ( "NEVER" to be turned off)
  ole locking         ( safe for Linux?)
  blocking locks      
  fake oplocks        ( should be off? )
  locking             ( "should never need to set this" )
  strict locking      ( off? )

So far the performance seems more than adequate and I hope for great
things for Samba. 

Any help much appreciated.
