It's only a 100mbit connection.

I can try netperf a little later... but I had to wipe the mandrake install 
in order
to do the the i386 FreeBSD install, so I'm temporarily unable to test Linux 

Anyway I think it's pointing to probably a threading and/or SMP issue, but 
I'll definitely
test network performance between the two as well.
