[Samba] Trying to put a MS SQL 7.0 database on a samba share

I would like to centralize all the company data to one central box. The 
box does have dual gigabit network cards, so will the MS SQL server have a 
gig network card to my Samba server. All the clients are running 100mb.

Anyone else with any comments would be greatly appreciated.
