Should be OK, but read this:

http://weblogs.asp.net/acampbell/archive/2004/06/25/164703.aspx

That's for ASP, but the same thing would apply in PHP.

Any other problems should be visible in your server logs.

It's a little different in PHP; make sure you're using is_uploaded_file (which should work around the problem seen in that article), and move_uploaded_file before using it. Have a look in your uploads folder (probably /tmp) while a client is uploading to see if a file is being submitted at all. I suspect you need to test this in isolation, or you could just ask them to use a different browser, such as Mozilla, Camino, Firefox or Safari, though that's kind of cheating... NS7 is recent enough that it really shouldn't have a major problem with this.
