I have a similar problem with an 2000 server and XP Clients. One XP
Client is performing fine. The others are slow or more slow (same SP
according to IT-manager). I have no idea what this is about yet.

The concept (DB + Client) works as a charm on a Suse 9 server with
mixed win clients (no 95/98, though).

I am also very interested in finding out about previous experience
concerning this. The project is just starting up in another city so I
wont have time to start prodding about it for some time yet. I'll
start by nudging the network consultant, then connecting a Linux box
to the local net and so on and so on...
