	I haven't done any direct performance testing, although I am planning on   
figuring that out now. (BTW, how is performance testing ran?) However, I   
can say that since converting over to the Samba PDC/File Server that the   
file transfer performance just feels much faster.

Sorry. I do not buy that story. I am able to get up to 11MB/sec on
100-Base-T and up to 30MB/sec over 1GBit Ethernet.

Client is AMD MP1600+, 512MB RAM, Server is AMD MP1500+, 1GB RAM, 3Ware
IDE RAID with 3 WD60GB 7200rpm drives.
