Hi People,

This is probably not too much realated to NTDOM stuff but...

Has anyone tried to run samba on a slow machine like a SparcStation IPC?

I have a client that would like to do so but I am unclear just what sort 
of performance he will get compared to NFS.

>From experience, using low end 486's has been fine except for when the 
client tries to connect to a share or is doing domain negotiation. These 
can take a wee bit of processing power but the rest just requires a bit 
of RAM.

If anybody has done some benchmarks of samba vs nfs I would definitely 
like to hear the results.

Thanks in advance.
