I have the same issue here on several different systems. I have not been able
to get throughput past ~70 megabits. Most times smbd hovers around 5-10% CPU
usage on a Duron 1200 system. With this one system upgrading from a
P2-350, to an Athlon 900 to the Duron 1200 have not changed performance at
all. The disk subsystem in the box has no issues doing reads and writes at
a rate 4-5 times higher than what I get out of Samba.
