I have a running samba server
$/usr/sbin/smbd --version
Version 3.0.2a

I use follow symlinks = yes and wide links =yes

from a linux client I can't go to  dirs that are symlinks to
directories living in another partitions different from the partition
of the exported directory. It doesn't follow links. In the client the 
links  point to, for example, /opt/firefox, but the link is broken
i  can't follow then

nonetheless, from a windows client it DOES work, it traverses directories
from one partition to other

any help would be appreciated
