:)  Have now downloaded 2.2.6, thanx.

It's the fileserver for a school, lab has 24 machines, and there's another
dozen scattered around the school.  There's only a couple hundred users
all told.  I'm not really doing anything special, I have a printer hung
off the server, each user has their own file share, and there are two
public shares.  I run a connect.bat script, and that's it.

If they had the budget, I'd be completely building a new server then swap
them into place, but I'm stuck with what I've got :(
