Stacks on Servers

Just a couple more questions...

I'm working with a Novell server and investigating the use of an iFolder to
give access to multiple users of a stack.

1. Does a Rev stack allow concurrent read only access to more than one user?
2. When an iFolder synchs a file upon access, what would happen if another
user was already using the stack?   Jim
