I've installed RedHat 6.1 with samba 2.0.5a (version on CD) on a dual PPro
200/64MB/3 wide diff Quantum 39100 drives set up as a domain member; with
an NT4 SP6 PPro 200 client, connected at 100Mbits full duplex, I get
1380K/sec using TESTNET 2.24, 500 blocks of 66635 bytes.

Using 3.3-RELEASE, samba 2.0.6 Release, on a similar dual PPPro 200/128MB/
4 wide diff Seagate ST410800WD (about 1/2 speed of Quantum), 100Mbits full
duplex, I get 1500K/sec with the same test.

2.0.6 Release was installed by using the patches from the 2.0.5a -current
port with patches ba and bb edited (first part of bb deleted).

smb.conf file is as follows:


   workgroup = <our domain>
   server string = Samba Server
   load printers = yes
   log level = 0
   debug level = 0 
   log file = /var/log/log.%m
   max log size = 5000
   security = domain
   password server = <our PDC>
   encrypt passwords = yes
   socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY SO_SNDBUF=16384 SO_RCVBUF=16384
   os level = 0
   wins server = <IP of WINS server>
   dns proxy = no 

#============================ Share Definitions ==============================
   comment = Home Directories
   browseable = no
   writable = yes

   comment = All Printers
   path = /var/spool/samba
   browseable = no
   guest ok = no
   writable = no
   printable = yes
