[Samba] Samba Slow, and I have high Quality NICS

I have SLOW file transfers across samba to my Windows Server 2000 domain.

I am using a built in 100bT Intel Pro NIC, I have tried the built in gigabit
NIC and a PCI 3com, all with the same results.

Using iperf, I get about 45-90Mb of bandwidth from my PC's to my samba

I can pull it up by \\servername <file:///\\servername>  or \\ipaddress
<file:///\\ipaddress>  with out any issues. I can ping servername

It is taking about 15 minutes to just pull across a 10mb file.

I've seen a lot of complaints about this on the web via "google" but no one
seems to have conquered it.

Anyone have a fix for this? I would owe you a steak dinner.
