Running a Window application from Linux server

I am trying to take out my NT server and replace with a Linux server.  I have successfully installed Samba and is now up and running.  However, I do have a database application written in Delphi that is running on the NT server with others accessing it on the Win98 clients.  It is not written as a client/server application, just a stand alone application with a couple of databases residing in the same directory.

I want to know if it is possible to move the application and databases to my new SAMBA server so that the Win98 clients can still run the application from there.  Will there be any file locking problem? The clients need to run concurrently.

Samba does support the netbios extensions required for file locking.  There shouldn't be a problem given that your application is written to the netbios standard.

Does that mean I need to be using NETBUEI from Win98?
