[svlug] Horribly slow connections to a RH 6.2 box?

I have a couple of RH6.2 machines on a LAN. The LAN is a couple of 3 COM
superstack switched hubs, with about 30 NT boxes on it.

If I try to telnet to either Linux box from NT, the connection either
times out or takes at least 3 minutes to connect. The Linux machines are
not running very much work, so getting CPU is not an issue.

Any ideas what is going on? Is all the NetBIOS traffic on the LAN
killing me?
