After just copying a 1.8G tar file to an NT machine (crippling the NT
machine while doing so.. I guess IDE probably has more to do with that
than the OS, Linux slows down a bit in similar situations, but I
I was wonder what exactly happens when you reach the 2GB limit in file
size? Is an error message printed? Do crazy things happen?
Oh yeah, and try du -csh on a dir with a 1.8GB file and about 600MB of
other stuff in there.. gives a negative number!
