Got some hassles with a client running Sybiz accounting. This is a FoxPro
application developed in VB6.

2000 or Win XP.
We're getting cases of workstations being able to see files via Win

think that this is more of an application problem.
Because they're only in a small workgroup, basically every user has full
read/write access to all the files in the share.
Needless to say, as this is odd ball part of the system, the general advice
is to get rid of the Linux/Samba system and use Windows 2000 Server -
something I'd rather not do as I don't feel this will be the solution to
