File Corruption on Red Hat 7.3 File Server

Hi, I'm running a Gateway dual PIII 600 MHz Red Hat Linux 7.3 kernel 2.4.18 i686 file server running netatalk 1.6.3 and samba 2.2.5-1.i386. I have Macs running OS 9.1 and a Windows XP. On the windows machines, some files written in microsoft word for mac 98 show up corrupt, some don't. But the same files on the macs show up fine. Likewise, some files on the macs show up corrupt but show up fine on the windows machine. I don't know what's going on. Please help if you can.

Having very little Mac experience...

It's not a compatibility problem between the Mac and Windows versions of Word is it? Or does the problem extend to more than Word documents?
Are the Windows machines having problems with the way the Macs are writing to the file system (and vice-versa)?
Has the problem just started? More info please.

I assume you've tried this, but what happens if you save a word document (or other problem file) to floppy on a XP box and open it on a Mac (and vice-versa)?

I thought it might be Word issues, but it happens with Quark Passport 4.11 documents also sometimes.
