This is caused by the protocol used to mount the shares.
|•||On the Mac OS, this means it has been mounted as an Appletalk share.
The limitation for Appletalk cannot be changed. However, OS X can mount it as a SMB (Windows) share and it wont have this restriction.
It will lose some Mac attributes, such as folder icons in the transfer.
|•||On the Linux, this means that you will need to mount using the lfs switch to enable large file support.
For example: "smbmount //server/share /mnt/server -o lfs".
|•||On the Windows 9x (95, 98, ME), this is a limit of the FAT16 or FAT32 file system that they see the share as.
This cannot be changed.
