[Samba] Office 97 dont open .doc files

I have the following problem:
(I'm not sure if have to send this message to you, or to Microsoft. ;-)

Samba 2.2.3a or 2.2.8a (not restarted yet)
Network of Windows NT 4.0 PCs and
one Windows 2000 Server.

The Windows NT Workingsations are working fine, but now I have to
integrate an Windows 2000 Server and with this Server I have the
following problem.

When I open an XXXXX.doc-file Office 97 tells me, that the file is
already openend by the same User. When I open an XXXXXX.dot-file
everything is O.K. And after enabling "fake oplocks" for this share
everything is also working fine on XXXXX.doc-Documents.

I think I can live with this fake oplocks (hopefully there won't be
two users working on the same file), but after I am responsible for
the system this is not a satifying solution.

Does anyone know the problem or has an other solution.

Ciao, Joern!
