(Second attempt at posting this - apologies if it appears multiple times)

I've built a new HP BL20p as an OES (SP2) server. I've created two logical drives, one for a Reiser
boot partition and the other for NSS.

The NSS volume works fine for the GroupWise 7 post office on it, but general file sharing
performance is truely awful.

For example, I've got a 1.2Gb tarball. Creating a copy of it from the shell on the Reiser volume takes
around 30 seconds. On the NSS volume, the same operation takes over *6 minutes*!

I know not to expect the same performance from NSS under Linux as I'd get on NetWare ... but 12
times slower? How can I tune NSS or troubleshoot what's going wrong?
