        I have a NT4 server which has a few folders with a fairly large
number of files. 4000, or 12000 say.  Most of the files are fairly small <
16K.   Browsing through these folders is painfully slow.  The server is not
heavily loaded by any means.  Is there anything I can do to improve this.
The server is a 333Mhz PII with 256meg of ram. with over 180 megs of ram
