I may be wrong, but as far as I know if the underlying filesystem can
handle large files, samba server will too.

Client is a different matter, you have to mount the shares with -o lfs,
but I'm not sure.  I've only had to do that once, when mounting a share
on an Win2k box.

Either ways, I copied a 2.5gb ISO image to a samba server using
konqueror's smb:// plugin, without any hassles.  It does report the
filesize incorrectly, though.
