Was wondering if someone could point me to information regarding oplocks (I
read the man on smb.conf regarding that and level2 oplocks)...

I needed to set oplocks = no  and level2 oplocks = no in order for them to
be able to open pagemaker files from the samba server...otherwise it would
say 'can not open file'

I am just trying to get a grip on oplocks, what it is used for, how setting
it to no affects the performance, and why I needed to set it to no
