Hold on. Collisions are not to be expected if your
NIC is 100/FD. It implies that there is a switch, not
a hub, between your Mac and Samba. You should set your
NIC to Auto-Detect speed or to 100/HD if you are
connected via a hub. And even if it is a switch, your
setting must match the port setting, so check it out.
