I am having trouble with reading files with dots at the end of the
name.  We are using a Unix machine as our map server.  When looking at
the files on the Unix side, the files I am trying to read have the
following format "aaaa." where a is an alphabetic character.  When I
copy a file, the dot is stripped off; however, when I try to read the
content directly through Samba, I get an error.

Do we have something set incorrectly in Samba?  This is a Unix - W2K interface.
