i have a linux machine running samba (actually, it's one of
Cobalt's Qube servers) ... when i set up shares on it, the
shares all start with a default of 3.6G on the ~30G drive.

this shows up both when using NT and macs ... and in fact
i can't copy more than that much into the share.  i believe
on the linux side, i can copy more than that amount into
the share though ... not sure about that.

in any case, how does this default get set, and is there any
way to change the size of the shares?
