How to increase Kernel-Buffer?

How to increase Kernel-Buffer?

Hi,

I would like to know how to increase the kernel-buffer. I tried to increase
the max_users in /etc/systems, but it did not really work.

(What I would like to achive: I need to capture the ip-headers with time-
stamps on a station in an FDDI-LAN in order to measure the maximum through-
put. I use tcpdump, but packets are lost before they are passed from the
FDDI-card to the kernel. That's why I would like to increase the kernel-
buffersize.)

Thanks for any help!
