I am new to unix and FreeBSD, but I have managed to get SAMBA up and
running perfectly (almost). My only problem is that when I try to copy
a large amount of data from a Windows 98 workstation to my SAMBA server,
it hits the hard drive like crazy! My HDD LED is stuck on completely
while transferring data! It doesn't seem to impact workstation
performance too much, but file copying is *very* slow. This almost
seems like some sort of cache buffer size problem. If it is, is there a
way to increase the size?
I should think that I have plenty of room to work with, as my
FreeBSD box is running a P166 with 128MB of RAM and a 2GB Fast-Ultra
SCSI 7200rpm drive.
Any info would help. Thanks in advance.
