What exactly are you trying to configure locking for?  Are you running a
network where the same files may be accessed at the same time?

Samba should have at least regular and level2 oplocks on be default.  I
don't believe kernel oplocks are on be default but they aren't needed unless
you're sharing a file that the linux system also writes to.

Keep in mind that for multi-user database stuff you do not want oplocks in
use with your database files.  I use the veto oplock files option to deal
with that.

All this and more can be found by typing 'man smb.conf' at the command line.
