[Samba] File Not Found Errors

I seem to be having a strange problem here.  First, I will describe
my current computer system setup.  Second, I will describe the problem.
Third, I will pose several suggestions contributing to the problem.
Fourth, I will ask you to investigate this for your self in search
of quick resolution. Fifth, I will attach relavent configuration files.

I have a production web server running Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced
Server and Microsoft IIS 5.0 web server.  Next I have my workstation /
firewall running SuSE Linux 8.0 and Samba 2.2.4.  My workstation is a
Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server.  Since I do my development 
both on my Linux and Windows, I mount my production server's shares
on my Linux box.  When I work off my Windows workstation, I simply
share out my mounts from Linux to Windows.

When I save my files from my Windows workstation onto my Windows
server via my Linux workstation, I am constantly getting "404 File
Not Found" errors for pages that I just saved.  I end up having to
re-save the file several times before the web server sees and 
processes the file.

Is there some sort of delay or file locking going on here?  Is this
a bug with Samba or NetBIOS, or just a mis-configured setting?

Please look into this quickly since this is becoming increasingly
frusterating in my development efforts.
