[Samba] Slow File transfer between Samba and Win2k

I just tried a similar test on a NT4, W2K dual boot machine.

W2K 700k/sec both directions
NT4 600k/sec NT4->Samba
NT4 60k/sec Samba-> NT4 (gaps of several seconds between network activity)

Currently I get poor performance when accessing an Access database from W2K,
but it's fine when booted into NT4! Both work fine talking to an NT4 server.
So there's something strange going on.

Subject: [Samba] Slow File transfer between Samba and Win2k

I have a Samba file server and a dual boot Win98/Win2k client. Copying file
from the Client in Win98 to the Samba server gives no problems:

(I copied one 6 mb file)

Samba server -> Win98 Client    550 kb/s
Samba server <- Win98 Client    500 kb/s

But then from Samba server to Win2k Client:

Samba server -> Win2k Client    190 kb/s
Samba server <- Win2k Client    18 kb/s

Because of the fact that I use a dual boot, I can narrow the problem to
Windows 2000, instead of Samba or even my network properties. I must admit
that I am new to this newsgroup, so I do not know how many further info I
should give. I also could not find anything about this problem on the web.

Any help would be appreciated!
