Problem with Windows Installer administrative Install and Samba 2.2.1

I have the following problem:

When I try to make a Administrative Install onto a Samba served 
partition, I get errors from the Windows Installer when it creates 
directories. This happens with an adminstrative Install of MS Office,
and also with an adminstrative Install of Hummingbird Exceed.

The error message is:

Interner Fehler 2327. 5, N:\Exceed_70\.......

The directory is really created, but the Installprocess stops. If I 
start the Installprocess again, it sees the already created directory, 
and tries to create the next one. Due to the large number of 
subdirectories a addmin Install of Office or Exceed creates, this is 
very time consuming, and I was never able to complete an administrative 

First I thought this was an Win2000 specific problem, which I reported
some time ago in the samba-ntdom List, but never got an answer.

Now I also tried it with an NT 4.0 client which had IE 5.5 SP2 installed 
, and one client which had newer Office service packs, which install 
newer versions of Windows Installer and I get this errors now also under 
NT 4.0 !

If more debug data is necessary, I could easily provide that.
