[Samba] Odd

I had a request a few weeks ago to replace a Samba server that I 
built for a local company.  I used Samba 2.0.7 for that 
and it worked fine apart from having to do some ocassional 

Built the new machine and that works fine as well.  Same smb.conf 
file.  Difference is that I'm now using Samba 2.2.1a.  Everything 
works fine across a Win98/ Samba network until I start Quick Books 
2002.   SuSE 7.3. I can still access the same documents on the old 
server at the same time but when I try to access the same documents 
on the new server it says on the Win98 version 2 client machines....

"QuickBooks was unable to create the image file.  The disk could be 
full or you may not have sufficient rights to the directory"

also ...

" Cannot access this file.  Check security privileges over the 
network drive".

All I've done here is copy and paste the Quick Books documents across 
the network to the new server.  Nothing else.  If you could give me 
some sort of heads up on this one or at least a clue then I'll be 
able to work out what to do next.

Perhaps if I were to create a separate directory/folder for the QB 
documents and set different permissions on those from the other 
documents ?
