Tweaking Samba for Perfomance

I've got the following performance-problem.  Especially large copies from
the server to the client take a very long time to compleet. How can that be?
Why is that so slow? Much slower than the same action from a Windows server.
I use Redhat 6.0 / Samba 2.0.5a and Win95 as a client.

Does anybody knows a good reference for optimizing a Samba Server?
