now I'm confused. I told about the locking problem
with Samba and MS Access .mdb files.
When I use Samba 2.0.7-49 with SuSE Linux 7.0 and
kernel 2.2.16 I have to set the option "fake oplocks=yes"
on the share to get access to the .mdb files.
Using Samba 2.0.7-105 on SuSE Linux 7.1 with kernel
2.4.0 it works without the fake oplocks option.
I'm using the same smb.conf on both machines.
