We have about 30 macs around the office...about 20 are G4 (with gigabit cards) and the rest are G5s....and about 15-20 PCs. We transfer fairly large sets of audio and video files (usually 300-700 megs and sometimes near a gig). Any ideas on how to speed the network up? We have all gigabit switches...CAT 5e and CAT 6 wiring but it just seems to be crawling a little too much. Is there some other file sharing platform that integrates itself with OSX? We also transfer from Mac to PC and vice versa.

Any ideas? Thanks!
