We have been invited a tender by the Edu. ministry of Hungary. We
are thinking about a "big" central file server for about 1500 named
clients. We expecting about 400-500 simultaneous light office clients.
The network is mostly fast ethernet, with gigabit backbone constructed
with cisco elements (7206, 2948G-L3, 2924M-XL...).

Fortunately we are unix (sun+solaris, netfin+linux) shop, but have no
experienc to size such machine. 

Our expectation is about an Ultra Enterprise 450, or a Fire 3800.
Becouse the 5 VLANs, I prefering a quad fast ethernet NIC for load
balancing, but a single gigabit interface possible, if it's better. 

Thanks for your effort.
