W95 speed issue

Hello all, I've got a W95 box connected via crossover to a 2.2.12
RH 6.0 linux box, running 2.0.3 samba.
Writes to samba from Win explorer are around 450 K/sec.
Reads from samba to Windows using Explorer are around 8 K/sec.
Using the smb version of tcpdump, I see between a .200 and .220
second lag between packets. smbd is nowhere near the top of my
"top" list output in linux.
Is there a hack to avoid this? What can I do to Win95 to speed
this up? FTP from the linux machine is also slow, but NFS is
less slow (150 K/sec). Ftp from the linux server to the same
Windows95, booted into Linux, give me 750 K/sec.
So it's W95. Any ideas?
