slow samba sharing

Hi.  I was hoping to search the archives, but I can't find them anymore...

Situation, we had been using Quickbooks via mapped drives to Windows
shares, and that was fine.  We moved the Quickbooks data files (shared) to
a samba share, and it works, but it seems EXTREMELY slow in functionality.
Any clues?  I'm using PIII-733MHz, RedHat 6.1, kernel-2.2.16, and samba-2.0.7

The smb.conf details for the share are:

    comment = Company Folder
    path = /home/samba/company
    public = no
    writable = yes
    printable = no
    vaild users = +company
    write list = +company
    admin users = +company
    force group = +company
