time to accept swap

I noticed that neccessary time to authentication is somewhat long,
several seconds in our case, when attach the swap area from other
file system on the file server.   Is this a normal behaviour?

Our network:

Auth/CPU server:  1.6 GHz Pen 4, RTL8100BL nic chip
File server: 200MHz AMD K6, Intel i82557 nic chip
Terminals:  many, most with nvidia graphic cards, and 
			i82557 + 2114x nic chip
		Thanks Mirtchovski updating nvidia driver.   I cannot live
		without those two files over 1024x768x8 resolutions, even
		MX 200 etc.

I see no problem from this answer???

By the way, from the hints by Charles and Dave, I re-examined my
/lib/ndb/local file, and found a line

auth=diabase.<fake domain> authdom=<fake domain>

where <fake domain> should be read replaced by something.

Then, I changed the line to

auth=diabase authdom=<fake domain>

Now, the slow authentication problem is gone.

Thanks all!

I already have this line in my /lib/ndb/local, but it doen't allow me
to use

auth=diabase.<fake domain> authdom=<fake domain>

instead of

auth=diabase authdom=<fake domain>

small boxed PC and dual CPU file server?

I saw some very charming PCs today, those are named as KCF-S868
or KCF-S767 barebone system, the former of which is for Pen 4 and
the latter for AMD (~1.1GHz).   The chipset is VIA/P4M266 and SIS 740,
respectively.   The most atrractive point to me is their box size, very
small and massive, 215(W)x310(D)x200(H).  They can have a HDD,
aCD/DVD-ROM and a floppy with integrated nic chip.   They have also 
one PCI and AGP(P4 version) slots.

I'd like to use one of them for our file server with Tekram scsi card
and external scsi drives.   Does Pen 4 can run file server?

Another one, is there any advantage to use dual Pentium system for
file server?
