Major network slowdown today... Samba the cause?

Actually, I don't think I can use 2.0.7 with SuSE 6.1. I checked the SuSE 
site when 2.0.7 came out, and it wasn't available in their list of upgrades.

I made a mistake. We're using 2.0.6. I did make one upgrade from the 
original distro. :)

Besides, this only became a major problem yesterday. I haven't made any 
changes, though. I thought there might be something wrong with my 
configuration, rather than with Samba's functionality.
