I notice that when I copy  a small directory (150 kb) to a samba share 
drive on Windows 2000, the performance is very slow. This is also the 
 case when using windows explorer on NT4. The samba share is made on a Sun 
solaris 2.8 system and samba 2.2.7 is used. Copying the same directoy with 
windows explorer (on the same pc !) to an samba share made on Sun Solaris 
2.6 system, running samba 2.0.2 is much faster. There are no network 
traffic problems. The same test I did on a DOS prompt. The result of this 
test was the same for both Sun solaris systems. So I think there is a 
problem with Win2000 explorer and  Samba 2.2.7. Do you have any idea what 
can be the reason?
