Win2k (Windows 2000) was slow, now fixed!

In Bruce Rogers' message of 10/00,
he recommended that if transfers from samba to win2k were slow, adding this
to smb.conf might help:

socket options =3D TCP_NODELAY
socket options =3D SO_RCVBUF=3D1
socket options =3D SO_SNDBUF=3D1

i can verify that on red hat 6.1, on my K63 400, with either a linksys
etherfast or kingston kne30bt card (i forget which, the machine has both),
this does the trick. win2k can download! thank you, Bruce Rogers!
