[Samba] IIS Virtual Directories and SAMBA

In summary, I have the following problem:
When opening files in particular folders contained in a Virtual Directory on
Windows IIS 5 server that points to a SAMBA share, via a web browser (I have
tried IE and cURL), I get a 404 - file not found error, however, I am able
to open these same files on the SAMBA server with Windows Explorer, using
the same SAMBA account that the IIS server is using.  Please note that I AM
able to open up other files of the same type via the web browser from the
SAMBA share when pointing to the Virtual Directory on the SAMBA share.
When I point the Virtual Directory toward a Windows server share that is a
mirror of the SAMBA share, I can open up every file just fine.
I have checked the file permissions on the SAMBA server, I can open up some
of the files that are located even in the same subfolder via web browser,
and I can browse all folders regardless of wheter or not I can open files in
them or not.
I am using SAMBA version 2.2.3a on HP-UX 11i.  
I appreciate any input!!!
Thank you.
