      I tried sharing the data as read only on a Win2K Pro file server with
      the same assumption, that it would treat it like a CD ROM. I also tried
      it with change permissions. Then I set up a Redhat Linux server to see
      if all of those fancy file locking options would help. No-go.

      Just as a thought, how about setting the share on the server to "read
      only"? I'm wondering if the one computer is creating some kind of
      scratch files that are messing up the other stations. The other
      possibility is that the files are being "locked" for read/write access.

      If you set "read only" then the computer will have to treat the files
      the same way as on a CD. It may also solve the locking problem since
      there is no need to lock a file that won't be written to.
