  I am running a small Linux system as a numbering/master server at one
site, and now that Linux supports large files, I would like to extend the
remember time a bit. However, the system will only accept 256MB of RAM, so
tagged hash is really needed.

  On that topic, has anyone tried the largefile support with new Linux? Is
there even code in place to do it? Hopefully all that's needed is an
option set by config. If no one has done this I'll put it on my list do
