One of my users is having this problem. He saved an MS Excel file on the UNIX 
disk and he always experienced cannot write to the file even if it is his 
file. I am not sure if this is the SAMBA problem or the NT problem(we are 
using Windows Terminal Server Edition). Sometimes, he experiences these 
message "cannot open read only file" or "this file is opened by administrator, 
open it as read only". All these problem related to MS Excel. I couldn't see 
any error in the SAMBA log file, but would like to know if anyone of you have 
experienced this?

Please advise.
