At first: Thanks for the response.

Here are the performance Measures of my Harddisks in the Server. As the
Harddisks are not connected to the Onboard IDE, they're not limited to 9

/dev/sda is the SCSI HDD where Redhat 9.0 is installed on.

/dev/sdb is the RAID 0, Connected to the PCI Raid Controller Card. The only
Share Samba provides is on the RAID, so performance should be enough.

[root at hdd /]# hdparm -t /dev/sda

 Timing buffered disk reads:  64 MB in  5.42 seconds = 11.81 MB/sec
[root at hdd /]# hdparm -t /dev/sdb

 Timing buffered disk reads:  64 MB in  1.55 seconds = 41.29 MB/sec

How do I set the Buffersizes and on which machine?

The Server and the Client both have the same GBit NIC with 8169 chipset.
