In Dell servers, these had (have) problems keeping up with large file
transfers.  Anything over 150MB and they choke, and never quite recover. 
You *do* have 32MB on it, so that may help some.  Just a word of warning, in
case you ever run into that issue...

When dealing with Windows clients, I normally give in to useing Samba. 
However, I tend to at least *try* NFS first.  In the office, I have Samba
running on the fileserver, sharing the same dir as the NFS export.  At home
though, it's all NFS (as I have total control over all systems).
