Packet collision on Samba traffic

I have packets colliding between a Samba server
and Win98 client.  The hub sender/receiver lights blink simultaneously
and the red collision lights as well.

With Samba-NT4sp6 traffic sender/receiver flash alternately, and no

Solutions anyone?
Is data being lost or damaged?
Would a switch solve this?... I doubt it

PS. Someone advised me to set my win98 client's nic to half-duplex.
The nic (Intel 10/100 Pro) choked at boot.
They also said a switch could fix this.
