I have experianced a similar problem:
We are running samba (2.2.3a)to serve a small number of clients (approx 20)
about half of them are laptops. We are running Windows 2000 on our clients
(No service packs installed). We had no problem with offline files until we
bought a new laptop (Windows 2000 SP 2). On this new laptop we got an errro
saying that the file couldn't be found as soon as we tried to open a offline
file in offline mode. So we tried to downgrade the client to windows 2000,
but we are still having the same problem. Our conclusion is that it is not
possible to "create new offline folders" with samba 2.2.3a, regardless of
which version of Windows 2000 we are using.
Can someone confim this and if possible give a hint to a solution to this
problem. The new laptop was my boss:es so I really want to solve this one
