if the filesystem at the samba-side supports it, I think it ought to work.Quote:

(e.g. is does not work on msdos mounted drives)
The only problem is that windoze96 is not case-sensitive, which is very
flexible, but sometimes gives trouble. Like when you send a unix
compressed file (extention .Z (note the capital)) via win95 to a unix
drive and then try to uncompress it in unix.... file not found <file.z>.Z
of course you just have to rename *.z to .Z, but still...
I guess it is hard to make a networked filesystem for a zillion platforms
and keep everyone happy ;-)
Anyway, I am very happy using samba on two local servers for file-sharing.
