Well, after some more poking around, I discovered that this problem was not
neccessarily a simple matter of getting Samba properly configured. For the
benefit of the list, I've posted the following URL which takes you to a
Debian bug report which starts out with a post describing the exact problem
I'm seeing. As it turns out, it may have more to do with a problem with
file locking and the v2.2 Linux Kernel I was using. I'm in the process of
installing a 2.4 kernel. Hopefully, that will fix things.
