Samba and filelocking...

I'm using samba in RedHat Linux 5.0. It works almost ok... 

First of all, I think everything is MUCH to slow. I am running it on 
a Pentium Pro 200MHz with 64Mb RAM. And there is only 5 clients 
using it. Is the something special I need to do about the 
filelocking?? Or have I just done something wrong during setup...?

Before this I had a Novell NetWare 4.1 as a fileserver, it was much 
faster. We are also running an administrative program over the 
network. After only one day on our samba server, the databases 
started to crash.. It has never happened before.

Does anyone have any idea why this is happening? I would be really 
grateful for a quick answer.
