Problems saving large ppt-files to samba server

We have problems with saving large ppt-files (>20MB) from a NTClient Sp5
to the Samba server (2.0.4b on Solaris 7). During save procedure the
client hangs, some time later the client displays an error messages like
"Error during saving into buffer" and the application is killed.
In the log file of the client on the samba server you see the error

[1999/09/29 12:25:50, 1] smbd/service.c:(488)
  kw ( connect to service present as user kw (uid=1071,
gid=114) (pid 16107)
        ----> try save the file
[1999/09/29 12:26:11, 0] smbd/nttrans.c:(2303)
 call_nt_transact_ioctl: Currently not implemented.
        -----> the client hangs

After this happens the file is destroyed! If this will occur any time
longer the same will happen to me :-((

Must I turn on some more options and recompile samba?
Any other hints.
