See if this can give some help to you:
I was experienced some problems with networks with win98 and winXP 
stations, the application was running with good performance almost of 
the time,
but in suddenly the performance slow down. We noticed that the problem 
was with the time to connect with the server, that was very slow.
The problem occurs also when the internet link down.
Well, I don't know why but when we exclude win98 stations from network, 
the problem disappears.
I think that was some DNS problem (but not sure), because one time we 
cleared nameserver clauses in the /etc/resolv.conf the performance 
return to the normal.
But we reinstalled win98 machines with winXP too, so I don't know what 
happened exactly.
The server OS was a Mandriva Linux running postgres ( 8.0, I guess) and 
samba. Workstations connect via odbc (informing the IP of server or the 
name to connect the problem persists).
