One thing I should mention is that during the file copy I noticed
performance problems with directories that had several files in them. I
thought the problem was with windows nt but the processes that seem to be
running the slowest hit these directories. By several files I mean 35,000+ .
The size of the files does not seem to matter 1k or 5m both are slow.
Sorry for all the emails,

Hi Robert,

	Pankaj forwarded your message to me as I was the
person who set up the VA Research Linux server for the
PC Week benchmark.

Could you elaborate a little more on your configuration
and problems ?

In addition, it may be advantagous to move the discussion
to samba at samba.org or samba-technical at samba.org so more
minds than mine can work on your problem :-).

Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
