[Samba] Network so slow

i replaced a windows-file-server with a linux-server and samba.
All clients run under Windows xp in an 100 mbit network.
With the windows solution i got no problems with the speed.

With my linux-samba-solution we detect a very slow network.
Per example i open a windows.xls or windows.doc file and this runs 30 seconds and more. Othertime i can open the documents in 5-10 seconds.

Has anybody any ideas?

Parallel to this mail i check my network connection and parameters of the network interface (dma, mtu, etc).

Thanks a lot,
