How do,

Anyone using SAMBA got any comments about it's performance? I'm about to 
build a W95 box that will need roughly 3GB HD. Due to market forces, it
works out cheaper to buy a 4.4GB HD and leave a quarter of it unused.

Is SAMBA's performance good enough that I could put the 4.4GB on one of
my FreeBSD servers, use 1GB for Unix related bits and pieces, and the other
3GB for W95?

The W95 machine will be running MS Access, and probably MS J++ as well, so
I anticipate it being fairly IO bound.
