Dear FreeBSD,

I am using FreeBSD (5) on my LAN as a gatweay/router and for website developement.
I have some questions I cannot find answers for.

Please can you tell me what are the limits of...
1. the number of files that a directory can store.
2. the number of directories that a directory can have.
3. the length of a path to a file name

Thanks a lot,

FreeBSD is the Best!
