[Samba] Slow Transfer Speeds (I have read the HOWTO)

I've been having a few troubles with samba 3. I can only get 4MB/sec 
writing to the FreeBSD server that it is running on. As its on a 100Mbit 
network I was expecting at least 6-7MB/sec.

I've included the smb.conf below is there anything obvious that I have 
missed from the config that can be seen as a performance gain or does 
anyone have any ideas for non samba items that can increase the write speed.


####### smb.conf


    workgroup = HOME

    server string = Brian

    security = user

     hosts allow =  127., 192.168.1.

     load printers = no

# logs
    log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
    max log size = 50
    log level = 1

    socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192

    dns proxy = no

    comment = Home Directories
    browseable = no
    writable = yes

    comment = richards user area
    path = /home/richard/
    public = no
    writeable = yes

    comment = data storage
    path = /data/
    public = yes
    writeable = yes
