It might help if you told us _what_ version of Autocad. 
And what version of SAMBA.
Right now I have whole offices using cadd without corruption.

I have one office that has some file locking problems, thats with 2000i with the civil plugins.
It was easily resolved by, (this is just with the civil plugin btw.)    

level2 oplocks = no

Make sure that CAD is configured for a multi-user environment. 
Use the most current version of samba to, I do.
