Thanks, I though so :)

Did that a long time ago :)

Been working for a long time

>- connect to Samba from your M$-box(es)

I though (smb)tar would be faster than copy.  (how much processing power
does that damn piece of paper floating through the air between folders
take anyway :)

>Hope this helps

Well, this was my initial thought, then I remembered smbtar, and figured it
might be faster.

Is smbtar not a good thing to use, or just unreliable/unsupported?
