[Samba] performance tweaks??

Has anyone any tips on improving samba performance with debian lenny?
I've set up a raid 0 partition on a couple of new WD 1TB disks,
formatting the majority of it as a single reiserfs partition. I must
admit I should probably have set the blocksize to something other than
the default at the time, but now it's well populated, changing stuff
like that is going to be a big problem.
Performance is pretty poor to put it politely - primary use is a single
samba share with a very large directory structure, millions of files.
Can anyone suggest any improvements that can stop it being that slow? I
regularly see 50+% in waitio.
Version in use samba 3.2.5-4lenny7, and I'd rather not change off the
formal release path unless it'll make a big improvement.
