# Dot-files and also various other meta information on non-Mac network shares

Exists a means to inform Finder to not make use of (or bother with) the _ * documents and also various other meta-data documents it generally attempts to make use of when it's on a network share?

Presently when I'm in Finder and also I attempt to replicate a documents to a network share it causes a mistake:

The Finder can not finish the. procedure due to the fact that some information in "file_name" can not read or created. (Mistake code -36)

Yet I can replicate the documents from the incurable command line to the network share and also utilize it from Finder later simply great. It appears that the meta-data isn't actually required on the network share. Exists a means to inform Finder this?

For reference, I'm making use of Snow Leopard and also the share is a Samba share on a Linux server.
