I'm using it at a tax business (along with tax wise) and it has been
working fine .... however there are only 2 people logged in at the same
Config is 
RedHat 7.3
Samba 2.2.4-3 (installed via rpm)
Config for share: 
public = yes
   writable = yes
   guest ok = yes
   printable = no
   dos filetimes = yes
Clients are:
Win2k sp2

I expect the biggest improvement would be to go to Samba 2.2.5 
I plan to upgrade it next month to the newest version (2.2.6 I hope!)

Hope that helps!

Hello all,

We are experiencing problems using MYOB Premier V6.0.2 on Windows 2000
computers SP3, with the data file residing on shared drive on Linux
(Redhat 7.2) file server running Samba Version 2.2.1a and kernel
The MYOB Tech support have told me that it is a problem with our network
but could not give me any hints where the problem might be.

The MYOB database has been corrupted at least 8 times over the last 4
days and every time we have to go back to our backups thereby losing all
of the transactions entered in the interim.
Has anyone had any experience with a similar problem and could give me
any suggestions?
Following is the smb.conf configuration related to the MYOB share
        comment = MYOB Directory
        path = /data/MYOB
        read only = No
        admin users = @myob
Any Help would be highly appreciated.
