I also have this problem, but I haven't seen any collisions on my network.
The Mac on the network works fine in both directions, so its gotta be
something on my Win98 box, but I haven't been able to track it down yet.
Tried PPPboost, with no luck.
Hardware: FIC 503+ motherboard with VIA chipset.
Linksys EtherPCI II network card.

>>Here is my home/office setup:
>>Machine 1: SUSE 6.0 set up as a simple file server using Samba 2.x.
>>Machine 2: Win98
>>Connected via FastEthernet.
>>If I copy a directory (~300MB) from Win98 to Linux box via Samba takes
>about 6 minutes... if I go the other way, takes 96 minutes!
>>I have both hosts/ips pointing to each other in their respective hosts

>>I'm still new at this so any help would be appreciated.
