Are you still using dBase III? Consider that dBase has been considered 
buggy and slow for at least the decade that I've been working with xBase 
files. You might consider moving your application to FoxPro if you want 
more speed, not to mention other advantages...

Is this the entirety of your smb.conf file? You should go back and look at 
the documentation for this file to see how it's constructed, as I don't 
think this will work very well, if at all.
