You have probably not patched both the kernel and samba, rebuilt and
reinstalled both. If either samba or the kernel you are using[1] is
unpatched you will not get large file support.

Also note that there is a 2.4.18 version available. I don't remember that
anything changed from the 2.4.16 patch, but I do know that a lot of people
have had success with the 2.4.18 one.


[1] - There is a difference between using and have installed. You can
      have multiple versions installed but use the wrong one.
