I tested this before a BLUG a couple of months ago.  ReiserFS doesn't
allow you to write larger files.  Unless you use LFS (Large File Support)
in the application, you'll need to use an Alpha or other 64-bit platform?

You'll need to search t see if there's any LFS support for Samba.

 The structure of a system reflects the structure of the organization that
 built it.  -- Richard E. Fairley
