[Samba] Windows interacting with SAMBA share

My company has a Samba [3.0] share on a Debian Linux 3.0 [Kernel 2.6]
machine and we are trying to copy a large file [>2GB] from a Windows
machine to the Samba share.  When we try to do this, it only copies 2GB
of the information.  We were previously having a similar issue when
transfering a large file [>2GB] from Linux to a Windows share [mounted
as smbfs], but fixed that with the 'lfs' option in the mount command.
Does anyone know what settings need changed to allow the Samba share to
accept large files from Windows?  I've searched the internet for a
couple days now and haven't found a solution.  Thanks for your help.
