I've just finished some large file testing with Samba 2.0.3 on a
Solaris 2.6 machine running Enterprise Volume Manager.  It seems to
work quite nicely.  NT4SP3 handles files > 2GB on a 50GB RAID

As for Win95/98, I'll run a few tests and see what it does but I
suspect that it won't be able to cope.
