Re: [PLUG] Transfer REALLY large file(s) between Linux and OS X

I've had little success moving even a few hundred megs between linux and
os x via samba - same files between win2k and linux (linux is the samba
server in all these scenarios) work flawlessly.

Thank you everyone for your assistance. The questions regarding HFS and
HFS+ got me to thinking about the volume format. The disk i'm moving it
to was setup quite a long time ago - and i had forgotten that I wanted
to be able to plug it into a linux box as well as an OS X box (actually
was the same box - booted to linux or os x). Of course, I selected MSDOS
format (DOOH!!) thinking it would be the easiest format to work with
(HFS+ is not supported in linux - or at least it wasn't when i installed
this disk). So I beleive that is the root of my problem. I should have
checked the format first - I assumed it to be HFS+ and asked a mac guru
friend of mine about this as well - so he will likely beat me in person
- saving all of you them trouble :)

Thanks again for your help. I'll be sure to let you know if reformatting
as HFS+ solves this issue.
