Samba and Linux is a great combination for providing a reliable fast 
file server on a network.  Whether you are using Microsoft Access, 
FoxPro, Quickbooks or CA-Clipper, with any multi-user fileserver 
database application there are configurations done both on the server 
and the client systems for this to work reliably.  The main settings to 
look for when setting up the Samba server to host a database application 
are: lock spin, and oplocks.
