I have windows box sharing a folder mounted via Samba on a linux box running apache. The folder contains CGIs running via Apache. Everytime apache reads the CGI, it is changing the timestamp. Back on the windows box in the text editor with the open CGI, it complain that the file has changed, do you want to reload.

It there are way to stop this?

The read only works for both cgi-bin/htdocs, however, there are scripts that change stuff in the htdocs folder that break because they can write anymore. :(
