[Samba] Slow performance with QuickBooks

That's strange.  Samba shouldn't be able to get close to FTP speeds.  I
was able to get 10.5MB/sec with FTP and only 7.59MB/sec with Samba.  I'm
running on a switched 100Mb network.  The network seems to be my
limitation in my case as my server hard drives seem to be able to output
about 20MB/sec.

I can get the same speeds on Win98 as I can on WinXP.  You have to tune a
default Win98's TCP/IP performance to get the best results out of it.
