[Samba] Question on Samba 2.2.1a

Dear listmembers,
we have a medium size network (~50 people) using samba for mainly fileserver
purposes on a Sparc linux (SuSE linux 7.3, kernel 2.4.20) system.
Every other time people face difficulties when copying files from the Novell
or Windows network onto the samba shares. Let's say you want to copy a file
called "dummy.doc" onto the samba drive. Then a file with that name is
created at the target location, having 0 bytes. Then you are told (i. e. by
explorer) that the file already exists (even though it did not before) and
you are asked whether or not you would like to overwrite. If you say yes
(overwrite), an errormessage appears that says that the file cannot be
You can delete the 0 - byte file a hundred times, you can check permissions,
everything seems to be correct - apart from not being able to copy really.
Anybody out there having an idea how to fix this? I do not have a clue what
could cause the trouble.
Many many thanks for your efforts in advance,
take care
