Sorry about the delay. I tried copying a number of files, from
a couple of bytes to 5.xx Mbyte. I did not notice any appreciable
delay on the tiny one. Rather it was copied as fast as I could
move the mouse.
To give some numbers on the speed difference ......
Copying a 5 Mbyte file from \\samba_server to c:\temp
takes approx 10 secs on a W95 box and over 3 MINUTES on the
"hot" NT machine... Mmmmmm......
