I know how to activate in system.ini @ win9x (max/minfilecache = N), but now  have been  using w2k for a while and didn't want to mess it up, maybe it's different. Any ideas?

The only tool I know to set cache settings is this:
http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/source/cacheset.shtml

However, the cache manager of Win2K is already much "smarter" than the one used in Win9X, so that it does not make such a big difference.

It makes not much sense to alter the value with that program.

My experience with a 64 MB Nt4 box was that the change works only for a while.

here it is explained very deeply:

I don't agree. My comment does also answer the question, since the link I posted does explain what can be done, what the caveats or advantages can be, and therefore I believe that it does answer the question.
