I never managed to get a DOS bootable floppy to do this, in the end, I got 
a copy of NFSDOS, which works fabulously.

I don't know the specifics of your situation, but I would be happy to send 
you an image of the two diskettes I use.

I would appreciate a copy of the DOS bootable disk you use, as I would 
prefer to use the samba shares to nfs (if of course it doesn't slow the 
whole thing down as it is on yours).

You may find that it is the DOS filesystem symantecs that are slowing samba 
down, although I can't understand why that would be.  multitasking dos 
would enable you to see if it's client cpu, top on the samba server would 
show you if it's server cpu.

I am not a member of the samba team,
and anything that I say may not be as
accurate as a response from one of the
team.  I reply to save those more
qualified time, which can more usefully
be spent developing SAMBA further.
