 Please help--WindowsXP cannot copy large files to Samba
 I have recently set up a samba to act as a domain controller.  At first
the setup seems to work fine however when I try to move large files (800 meg
+) from my desktop to the server I receive the following error after about
minute: "the specified network name is no longer available". I can
 and files size smaller than about 800mb.  I have ensured that the Suse
and WindowsXP firewall are turned off.  Does anyone have any idea?

Router Specs:
    Netgear WiFi /w 4 Wired Cat5 ports
    Firewall Status: On (Tried off as well)
Server Specs:
    Suse 9.1 Linux
    RAID 5 Controller (560 GB available to the network to store files)
    Samba 3.0.20a
    Domain Controller
    Firewall status: off
Desktop Specs:
    Windows XP Pro
    Connecting to Domain is Successful
    Fiewall status: off
    Can copy/read and write files smaller than 800 mb

Samba conf file:
   netbios name = borg-queen
   workgroup = THE_BORG
   server string = Borg Server
   socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY
   dead time = 15
 #Browsing Options   os level = 65   preferred master = yes   domain master

logon drive = H:    #Security Options   security = user   hosts allow =
192.168.0. #Debug logging information   log level = 3   log file =
/var/log/samba.log.%m   maxlog size = 50[homes]   comment = Home Directories
valid users = borg-queen, %S   read only = no   browseable = no   [netlogon]

Yes i have tried that.  In fact it is only there because someone advised me
to put it there.  I can copy files back and forth via FTP.  Obviously htough
I would like to have smaba and windows XP running so that the pcs can copy
and move files via windows explorer
