I am still using foxpro applications from wkstn. All dbf and exe's are kept on samba. Earlier these applications were working fine in Novell but now they give me sharing problem on samba. Any help will be highly appreciated.

I don't have a solution, but it sounds like file locking within Samba.
The other candidate would be MS <-> Linux file permission mapping - file owner/group/world etc.

I just have a question about Visual Foxpro. I'm sorry this is not related nor an answer to your problem.

You seem to be using Visual Foxpro with Linux, but I noticed you're using Samba with Windows workstations. Is there a way to use VFP6 in full Linux systems?
