ClearCase 6.0

Probably best to take this to the samba-users or CCIUG lists, however
that being said, we've had a lot of success with both late 2.2.x
versions, and anything in the 3.0.x tree. 

I'd make the following recommendations:

1) Make sure you turn off oplocks.
2) Increase the number of MNODES on your clients.
3) Especially if you're on a routed network, or a network with >1ms ping
times, read
Actually, it's well worth a read anyway.
4) Look carefully at your build processes - in particular at least one
version (I forget which) of the CC make tools will support
multiprocessing builds on a single host - these can help a lot in build
times, purely because they keep the CPU busy. Do this early, because the
feature's of the different [x]make tools differ, and porting makefiles
is a pain.
