I am running samba Version 2.2.8a-SuSE on a SuSE Linux 9.0 box.

It has dual 700MHz CPU's and 512MB RAM

It is used as a file server, serving files to Win XP and Win 2k users.

I have noticed it is using between 30% and 75% of CPU usage per smbd session, which slows the 
network to a grind.

I thought samba and smbd used very little of the CPU.  Is tehre anything i can do to reduce this ?
