I just did a test of Mandrake 10 and Suse 9.0. I used the same version
of Samba and both were run with out the GUI on the exact same box just
hours apart. When connected to the machines using a windows machine -
the Mandrake 10 box pushes about 30 mbit/s out of a 100 mbit/s line
using large files. The Suse box on the exact same box an hour and a
half later got 60 mbit/s. I couldn't believe the difference so I
reinstalled Mandrake 10 again and got the same results.
The only difference between the two distros is that Mandrake is using
the 2.6 kernel where Suse 9 is still using the 2.4 kernel.
Just thought I would let you guys know in case you needed a network file
server and were running mandrake.
