Hi Docume,

This directive handles the behaviour of file sharing
If set to yes support for DOS-style whole file locks is turned on

  see the explaination in

after setting the directive the loggoff worked perfect;

as i understood this documentation this is a old DOS-Relict and some Programms 
need this directive set to yes;

normaly i would say you should not change it 
but w2k does writings on a share thats only available to itselfe, and no other 
client can write on it 
( if you don't login as the same user on two client-machines )
so i think there's no danger for multiple write-access on a file

?? maybe samba locking/oplocking does ensure the r/w - operations althoug 
share modes are set to no ??

hope this helps
