i have some problems with samba, mac and excel. maybe filelocking?

follow; one net with samba as fileserver, win98 and mac's. protocoll 
is only smb, (on mac dave 2.1-2.6).

the problem; when an dokument is opend by mac (with excel98), the
win-client becomes an requester 'file is already opend by user...' while
read the file, this is the right one.

if the document opend by windows (with excel 97pro) and
the Mac will opend it, he hangs with the excel98 startlogo so long while
the file opend from win; when win the file closed, the loading on Mac
arround and ready.

any ideas?
