Subject: Problems with Excel and Access files

I have a problem width some excel files in my Samba File server because
when I try to open from a WinMe client, the client machine always
craches width a error in the vredir.vxd and ifsmgr.vxd. I think is a
problem in oplocks or something like that.
In the mdb files, the MS Access tolds me that can't open the file
Can anybody help me?
What configuration should I have in [Global] and [Files] sections?
What unix permission should I have in the directory and excel, access
