[Samba] Quickbooks revisited

I did testing on generating this report from a 130 MB Quickbooks file.
Locally, 15 seconds.  Samba Server, 1:35.  Shared off of my win98
Workstation, 2+ mins.  I do not understand the reason it is SOO slow.  I
know it is a fairly large file.  The only explanation I can come up with is
the way QuickBooks is accessing the files.  Maybe jumping all around the
file, requiring many operations on the file.  Can anyone explain this?
Opening the Check Register is horrendously slow, generating reports is slow.
Its all around SLOW.  I Know QB is slow, but its not this bad.

Thanks In advance,
