what is Samba speed limit? I usually get maximum throughoutput about 3-4
MBytes/s reading from Samba, 2-3 MB/s writing to Samba server. (IDE discs,
but 256 MB memory, Athlon 900 MHz, one 500 MB file, 100 Mbit network).
What are your results? Does anybody knows about some performance tunings? I
have adjusted only this:

socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=16384 SO_SNDBUF=16384
write cache size = 262144
