Samba and Microsoft Excel

I'm running Samba 2.0.5a on a RedHat 6.1 on a peer to peer windows network.
I have noticed that trying to open an excel file resident on the server from
a Windows NT client it takes a very long time to open the file (10 minutes
for a 4.9MB spreadsheet).  From a Win98 client it does not take this long at
all.  I've tried changing the oplocks= setting and the ole locking
compatibility= setting.  Neither seems to have any effect.  Does anyone have
any advice?
