QB2004 was happy to have multiple users access the QB file at the same 
time in multi-user mode and thus the QB file could be hosted on Samba 
with no issues.
QB2007 insists that one machine become the "server" of the file for the 
other users in multi user mode. (where did their software architects 
learn their stuff?) Thus one needs to designate one of the five 
multi-user licensed machines as a "server". In my case, I wanted to host 
the QB server and of course I am running linux - hence the setup I 
described above.
