MS Office / Bandwidth problem [ only tangentially topical ]

Hi All --
A client is having a problem using Office 98 to edit files stored on a Samba
server (1.9.17p2 on intel linux 2.0.30) across a relatively slow frame relay
link. Office essentially fails on save operations (sometimes locks up,
sometimes says "network not responding", sometimes just fails to save)
involving large files.
So I wonder:
1) has anyone on the list experienced this problem before with Office? Are
timeout values configurable, etc?
2) Is there anything I can do with the Samba config to improve the situation.
I really don't think the problem has anything to do with Samba, but it would
be nice if the solution could .. ;)
