The problem is with Win2003 boxes, Chris. I am the one who tipped about 
the gnome-vfs that I have had working before. Ooo only opens in 
read-only on Win2003 shares unless you trick it by using cifs instead of 
smb or load the gnome-vfs that does not have the problem.

Mike - I am home on Xmas leave, when I get back in office I will do a 
proper check on the boxes I have working.
