[SAMBA] samba and dual homed machines

I'm trying to install an ATM network that will contain my
NT clients and UNIX servers. When I do tests with FTP between
NT and UNIX over ATM the results show a big improvement.  However,
once I start using samba performance goes down like a rock.
It turns out that when using samba.  The traffic from NT to
UNIX will go over ATM, while the traffic from UNIX to NT still
goes over Ethernet.  No matter what I do I can't convince samba
to use ATM.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
