Hi Guys,

This is a strange one. We use Samba on a SCO UNIX Box that shares various
files out. If you are on a Win98 system and copy a text document over to the
local disk on win98 and then modify the file on a single line from the SCO
system and then re-copy that file again to the 98 box it doesn't recognise
any difference. It doesn't appear to occur with XP and Linux systems
mounting the Samba shares at all. So I am assuming this is a problem with

Can anyone please share some light on this subject, I have done lots and
lots of searching with no luck on how to overcome this issue. I have tried
various things like disable caching on Windows etc etc etc. Nothing helps
