Which is it, a standalone server or a Unix domain member, it cannot be
both ;-)

This is easy, the biggest most powerful CPU possible, as much memory as
possible and the biggest HD possible ;-)

To be honest, it all depends on the number of users and just how they
are going to use the Samba machine.

The kernel has got a lot smarter and you should probably just leave it
up to it.

It might help if you could post your proposed smb.conf, we could then
point out any problems or suggest improvements.
