I've done this with Win9x clients, but I get a fairly disastrous performance
loss doing it. Copying 1GB+ video drops from ~4MB/s down to ~2.5. Chilling
thought: that drive mapping scheme dates from WfW3.11, I wonder if they're
still using the original 16-bit code, and making thunking noises down in the
network layers? If a faster processor (above statistic is from a K6/200)
improves the 2.5MB/s I'll be upset.
Anybody know more about this?
