I have this situation:

I need to share a 30MB application tree with about 400 PCs, this is an
entire application tree, and I wan´t all the PCs to run it off one or
more application servers.

The questions:

- Do I need to install more than one samba server?

- Is samba the appropiate solution, I´ve heard about something called
AFPS or something like that, that has less overhead and is "better?"

- Will any of this solutions slow down the network and obviously the

- How much memory do I need on the server?

- Anything I´m forgetting?

Thanx a lot.
