Perhaps a little bit, but requires sub-netting and carefully
choosing which systems are in one of the two subnets. Nothing

Mh, 100 Mbit/FD will deliver 12.5 Mbyte/sec throughput under
optimal conditions, 10 Mbyte/sec is what you can expect from
halfway decent equipment. Now that can be easily out-maxed by

He wouldn't have asked if he already knew. I'd suggest using
"bonding" to or more NICs to speed up things. Full info should be
found (needs kernel source installed):
Using GB NICs for the server might be another good idea, if
switches/cables can handle this.
