I use CVS NT with repository on SAMBDA drive, however naming conversion
causes issues with ,Makefile, etc. RCS file locks when CVS NT server tries
delete them from repository.

I've set up the service to use an account that has access to the repository
and checkout and edit work fine.  It's just the ,Makefile, etc files that
have an issue.
Apparently the CVS server doesn't use them, but it appears to at least
attempt to
delete them :>

Does anyone have any suggestions regarding an smb.conf file that might allow
samba server to work with files of this type?
