Wow, that's a twisted net of mounts. To get you right:

You use the SFU NFS server to mount -t nfs on a RHEL box.
You use Samba to re-export this to a Windows XP machine.
You get file corruption when writing to that samba export.


Question: Why don't you just mount directly from W2k3? And,
you might just try "posix locking = no" and "kernel oplocks
= no" in your smb.conf.
