[Samba] Any way to tweak away LOTS of collisions?

Hello, I've been experiencing extreme network slowdown and latency doing
things as simple as playing an MP3 or copying files across a network.
The traffic is between an OpenBSD 3.0 and Samba 2.2.3a box and a Windows
2000 machine.  

Linksys BEFSR41 router/switch
3Com EtherLink XL 10/100 PCI TX NIC (3C905B-TX) in the Windows machine
D-Link Systems 530TX+ in the OpenBSD box

Machines are set 100 half duplex and I have the following options in my
socket options = TCP_NODELAY
socket options = SO_SNDBUF=8192 
socket options = SO_RCVBUF=8192

I am getting LOTS of collisions - is there something I can tweak in the
smb.conf or perhaps the window sizes/mtu to get better performance?

Cables are top-notch too.

Thanks a lot!!
