Checking for an open file?

Hi, All.

Is it possible, from a Windows 9x client, to determine if someone else has a
file open on a Samba share?  We have a shared Statistica database residing
a Samba share that may only be opened if no one else has it open.  I'd like
some mechanism that could test for the open file from within, say, a DOS
file prior to launching Statistica.

(Samba 2.0.7, VA Linux (Red Hat) 6.2, kernel 2.2.14-5.0.14smp)

Any advice is appreciated.
