If you have ordered your Raspberry Pi recently you'll get the 512M version,
that one should work much better then the 256M version, cause the memory is
a bottleneck in mine. Don't run X11 on it if you can avoid it, that gives
you faster response time. I installed webmin to get a easy way to
administer the box, however, there isn't a module for SAMBA4 yet, but you
can administer much else with it.
