have you checked the profile size - if you don't keep watch on the
netscape and internet explorer caches they can get fairly ridiculously
big (like 15MB)
Another issue your network - are you switched or shared?
if shared do you have chattering card..
can you check your switches/hubs for collision percentages?
do you have any mac's doing appletalk over this?
they are VERY talkative.
are you using netbeui AND tcp ip.
if you are kill the netbeui/netbios - its crap and NOISY.
try an ftp connection from the samba server to the other host see what
speeds you get
