Hey their James, I am using samba at work on my network with our accounting 
software package ( accpac). have up to 15 people in it at once an it works 
pretty good. this past upgrade we did few months ago made things bit slower 
but it has preformed well for us for several years. I had to set oplocking 
off for the database files for access an the database files for the 
accounting software do not have the smb.conf in front of me at moent here 
at home But I can shoot you what I have in it in morning. You will more 
then likely have to veto oplocks for yours also but not sure. willl shoot 
you message tomorrow off list with my smb.conf info for trhe share I 
have  for the package.
