byte range locking

Hello all,

I have an ACT database residing on a Samba 2.0.6 server running Linux.
The clients are Windows98/NT.  When a user is editing a record in the
database ACT will not allow another user to edit *any* record in that
database.  The way it is *supposed* to work is ACT should only lock the
record being edited and not the whole database.  This problem does not
occur if the database resides on a Windows server.

>From what I understand it seems as if Samba is not applying the type of
locking it should be.  I think it should be using something like byte
range locking.  Currently the only option I have set in my smb.conf file
is "oplocks=no" to turn off client side local caching of the database
files.  Everything else to do with locking is set to default.  Does
anyone have any recommendations as to what I might try?
