Hi all,

I've just realised Samba doesn't appear to support M$ Briefcases, which is a
bit of a shame as I've just designed an Access Database system that needs to
replicate between Servers on five sites, and we've just converted the
client's NT Servers to Linux Samba Servers.... (now, finally, things work

So, presuming there is a God up there somewhere.... can anybody please tell
me how I might enable Briefcase support?

I've had a hunt around, and the best I've found is somebody saying I need to
enable the read only attribute. Hmmmm. I presume they were having a laugh
and there really is no God after all....

Any believers out there care to answer the Great Question once and for
all.... can it be done... please??!!!

Many many many thanks for any help received!!
