>I'm intrigued! What sort of config are you running on your Samba box(es)
>(I'm assuming it's served from a Samba box) to support that app?
Nothing too special for hardware or config files, I don't have real hard 
speed numbers on the big installation since that's at a customer's site 
and it's not my baby to support them, but they were running on a Quad 
cpu E450, now it's a v240 I believe, gigabit network and a decent disk 
array.  We run a smaller config in our office that is an old Ultra 2 
with a really slow disk array but we run only 6 or so users at once.  
Oh, sorry, those are all Sun boxes if you didn't know by the numbers.  
I've run it off various other things but never for more than a couple of 
users.  By far the biggest installs *I've* run into are at this client's 
site and they don't seem to mind.

This app doesn't run any database or anything, so if you're doing that 
then you could be looking at some issues.

I'll check the load up times when I get back into the office.  The app 
is generally a big hog so the users don't ever complain.  I've seen it 
use nearly a gig of ram before so you know it's piggy.
