First of all, if you are only doing file sharing, you don't need a PDC setup. Second, I 
assume that your current Samba server is a different box than your old Novell server. If 
this is the case, is the new server a lot less powerful than the old? Is it on a different 
network segment? Are you using a 10base-T NIC where you were using a 100base-T? Also, what 
OS is running on your Samba box?
