ERROR! Out of file structures

I was running 2.2.9 but downgraded to 2.2.6 to get software raid running!
Where is the patch to allow more file descriptors?

		Hi Mark!

		I've had the same error while using Samba with RH6. I
reinstalled LinuX with
		SuSE 6.1 and recompiled kernel 2.2.9 (now 2.2.10) and samba.
The error didn't
		occur after that. If you are able to recompile your kernel,
you may try to patch
		your kernel to support more file descriptors.

		Anyone else heard of another solution for that problem?
