I'd like to use Rpi as home NAS, I have already problems using XBMC and samba. Making it really slow to work with HD connected with Rpi. Now I want to try plain raspbian with Samba to serve files (watching movies) from connected HD for multiple PCs, maybe it will be quicker.
Is it possible to serve multiple files (up to 3) from Rpi at the same time?
Rpi is connected to 100Mb ethernet.
Any hints how to make it faster? HD formatting, another OS, etc.
