[Samba] Samba slow to Windows clients

Answered my own question but am a loss to explain.

It's a cheap (Jetway) Mobo with a built in RealTec Lan card.

All seemed well and was V.quick with Linux clients.

I disabled the onboard LAN and inserted a £5 PCI RealTEc 8139 and it is fine
with Windows as well?

I am pleased that it works but WHY?

Hi All,

I have just built a new P 4 1.8 RH8.0 Server rpmed up to Samba 2.2.7-2

It works GREAT for smbmounted shares on my linux boxes and sssllllooooowwww
on my Windows clients (2K and 98)

Specifically, moving a 15 Mb file over my 100 MBit network with one hub

around 20 sec for the smbmounted share on a Linux box and 8 minutes on a
Win2K/98 box.

Any ideas?
