Performance tuning a samba system

I have recently started using samba 1.9.18p8 to serve up files here due
to reliability problems on some of the Novell servers and a desire to
get away from Novell.

But I have run into a problem. I have received reports that performance
to the Novell box (a pentium based system of some type) is considerably
faster than the performance to my Sun Ultra Enterprise 3500 that is
running nothing but samba.

Can someone give me some hints on performance tuning my system?
