[Samba] Excel Word XP slow response from Samba

I have a problem on a Redhat 9 box with Samba.
The first few times I open a file from Samba with Word or Excel running on
XP I have no problem with speed.
After that it takes 4 to 5 minutes to react.
I copied the setup of the Redhat box from the Samba setup of a Mandrake 10
On the Mandrake 10 box I don't have this speed problem.
I include the Global settings of the Radhat Box, which are the same as the
Mandrake Box.
The problems only seems to be between XP and Samba as the 95 and 98
Workstations are working fine.
