We use a big fileserver running Linux/Samba as fileshare. 
We are facing performances problems for which we'd like some advise :

Clients are OS2(LanManager)  and windows 2000 reading and writing lots of 
files in the same directory on the fileshare.
We currently have more than 80 000 files in the directory (files size is 
about 100 Bytes).
Could you please advise us some Samba tuning you would apply in a such 
situation. I'm sure you also have some
recommendations on Linux parameters like filsystem type, general 
kernel/network settings.

Feel free to forward this to whoever who could help us.

Salutations / Kind Regards
