I cant use FTP with out some security changes to the UNIX server I will
attempt to do this soon. As for the cards they are both half duplex.  This
only happens on the NT to Unix side, NT to NT its fast. But both NT systems
are running at 100BT. The UNIX server is an HP E35 66MHZ single processor,
its about 5 years old. Here is the smb.conf file.

With a similar configuration on Linux, it takes me about 10-15 minutes
to move a 650MB file. Your figures are terrible... 

1/ Have you tried the same file fransfer with FTP? What transfer rate do
you get?
2/ Does the problem exist with all NT-clients, or just the one?
3/ What speed/duplex mode are your cards actually running at. A duplex
mismatch can cause this kind of grief.
4/ What's in your smb.conf?

Post some of this info, and we may be able to see what's going on...
