Timestamps on files

We have a situation where users on a Windows box map to a Linux machine 
(6.2,2.2.16-3).  When they OPEN the file for read purposes only and exit 
out, the time stamp on the file is change to the present time.  In looking 
at the docs, it appears that setting the "dos filetime=yes" in smb.conf 
should take care of this.  Is this a true statement? or is there a lot that 
I am missing.  I am by no stretch of anyones imagination a guru in unix or 
samba.  Any help would be appreciated.
