My company is running Red Hat 6.2 and Samba 2.0.5 (I think).  The deciding 
factor was that the behavior between NT and Linux/Samba could not be 
reconciled after several weeks of experimentation and much hair 
pulling.  NT is remarkably stable when you have one -- and only one -- file 
being accessed across the network and nothing else is running on that box.  ;)
