This command hangs my system. It works for a 100K file, but it hangs my
system, if the file is 470M. It does not matter, if the disk is SCSI or

linux 2.4.2

With kernel 2.2.18, it works fine.

I also have some problem, with ncpfs. I am not quite sure, because I had to
hack the source, to compile it, but the same hack works with 2.2.18.

If you have anything to tell, please mail me. I am not on the list.
