[Samba] SWin98se & 4GB+ files

Does anyone know if its possible to read and write files larger than 4GB
from Win98se client on a simple Samba file server ?

I believe that its the Fat32 file system rather than Win98se which limits
the file size - but I'm not 100% sure.

Also, are there any issues with which file system to use under linux ?

I'm inclined to use the latest stable releases Debian 3.0r2 and Samba
3.0.4 - is this a good combination and are there any oddities I should
look out for ?
