I think I need to explain a little better. Its not a matter of
creating, storing, dealing,
..... with the file. Its a matter of the file is not displayed during an
directory listing, also the file is accessable using a nfs mount.
of the mounted samba share.

Samba, is of course, subject to the file size limitations of the OS
under which it runs. If you need larger than 2GB file sized on, say, a
Linux box, just install support for the Reiser file system (may
require a kernel upgrade). Reiser supports files much larger than 2GB.
