I'm using Samba 2.2.5 on Solairis 8. I have a problem with W2k and WXP 

I have a folder, in a share, that is protected against deletion by a 
non-root user. I tested this in the unix environment
to ensure the permissions were setup correctly. If an NT4/W9x client 
attempts to delete this folder, an access denied
message is displayed. However, if a W2k or Wxp client attempts to delete 
it (using Win Explorer), windows appears
to delete the folder, but it really isn't deleted because if I check the 
unix environment, the folder is still there. Now...
if I refresh Win Explorer, the folder still appears deleted. But...if I 
close Win Explorer and open a new Explorer the folder

Can anyone shed some light on what might be causing this?
