    I have a Windows 98SE box trying to connect to a Linux RedHat 6.0
box running Samba 2.0.5a-1.  Browsing is very slow. Seems to take at
least a minute to get between directories, which I think suggests a
timeout. Sometimes it just locks up I tried making sure dns, lmhosts,
config options, password.reg, etc were all right. But the problem just
seems to get works. Windows to Windows works and Linux to Windows works.

Here are the key parts of the smb.conf

   hosts allow = 192.168.1.
   load printers = yes
   log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
   max log size = 50
   security = share
   socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
   interfaces =
   name resolve order = host lmhosts bcast
