I have a small (12 -14 pcs all XP Pro OS) that are now attached to a SBS2003
network. One PC, an XP Pro, is being used as a storage PC (It was the
origanal "server". This has 4 250 GB raid drives as one drive. The problem
is I get "no more connections can be made....." once all the PC map to it.
This PC hold all the photo's for the photoshop.

Can I over ride the max user above 10 in a registry setting?

No. To enable more than 10 network connections you need to be running server software.

It's a fixed limit - move the files to the SBS Box. That's what a server
is for.

Suggest you move your "raid" array to the SBS box - it'll perform better and
more concurrent connections to boot.

Or, insted of forking out £300 od for server 2003 (or any thing of
the like) get some one who has a clue about linux/BSD to set up a
Linux/BSD samba server, plus Samba out performs windows at windows
file sharing nerly 5 times over.
