Slow saves on Win XP /4.83 to Novel 5.1

By straylor ·
We have recently begun implementing Win XP Pro machines into a former Win 98 enviroment and have noticed that when saving a file from a WinXP Pro machine to the network drive, it takes up to 500% longer than it use to on a Win 98 machine. (Sometimessaving W97 Excel file fails all together) We are running Novell client 4.83 on the XP machines using IPX conneting to a server running Novell 5.1 sp5. Any one have any idea what could cause the slowdown? Is there some known issues with XP and Novell?
Thanks

Get all the 4.83 patches including TID #: 2963381. Also "Thawing the Win2K Freeze" at Netware Cool Solutions: www.novell.com/coolsolutions/netware/features/trenches/tr_win2k_freeze_nw.html

The answer at Novell sounded right but I had all patches already installed , and in Win XP there is no settings similar to the the article speaks of. We already have installed Intel(R) PRO/1000 MT Network NIC cards installed.
Thanks though

We had a similar problem - SP1 for XP seems to have fixed it.

Thanks we had already upgraded to SP1 and also found out that SP1 actually causes a further slowdown
