WAN links and oplocks

Hello all, reposting.
Linux 2.2.5, Samba 2.0.6, and a 56k bridged link via Multitech
Clients (W98, DOS) on the opposite side of the WAN link cannot access
files on shares on the Samba server. They can browse, get a domain
logon, map drives, but when trying to drag a file in Explorer or copy
at the command line, it hangs the system, and eventually bluescreens it.
Errors like: timeout waiting for client and failed oplock break are
Is there something inherent in the lag of the 56k link? I know Samba
works over a dialup, but I'm starting to grasp at straws here....
