    Unfortunately I inherited a Microsoft access database that runs on an windows
    xp machine. It is shared between four users. When the users are attached it
    seems to crawl. I’ve added gig nics and I’m planning to add a scsi drive to
    the xp machine that houses the database. Is there anything else I could do
    to speed it up or am I spinning my wheels?

    Throwing more hardware beyond a properly running 100 base T network will
    generally not help.

    However, ensuring you have a proper setup for multi-user will make a big

    You should have a split system, so, get that right....

    I explain this here:

    The above will not fix your performance, but it will increase reliability by
    a large amount.

    To fix performance, try the persistent connection trick...9 out of 10 times,
    this will solve your speed problems

    For the persistent connection trick, and more ideas..work you way though the
    following list...it should fix your
    performance issues
