Right, and given that info (news 2 me, 2), your best bet would be to 
use two files on two separate servers (one on each server), 3 on 3 
servers, 4 on 4 servers (ideal), or to just use one large file, for 
reasons outlined in this thread.

If multiple servers are out of the question (or if it is not worth the 
expense to get the slightly higher throughput, as is likely the case), 
just use one big file.
