bigs files get corrupt when transfering from WinXP to a linux Samba server

I tried to transfer big files (more than 1Go) from a machine with windowsXPpro
to a linux server running Samba.
I did it over a 100M ethernet network.
then i used md5sum to check the files : the files are different (but the size
is the same)
I tried again and again. same problem.
it seems to happen especially when file size excess 100Mo
in fact, I've never been able to transfer a 1.7Go file without corruption.
usually, only a few bytes get corrupt but this is EXTREMELY harmful with .zip
or .rar archives !
there is no problem with SCP or FTP. so, I think it is a problem in the
transport protocol. isn't there some error detection algorythm in the SMB
not a samba problem
(was an ethernet problem)
Unfortunately,I have the same problem.
Samba-3.0.20 + FreeBSD6.2
When i copy some big files to the Samba, the file corrupted, the same
size but different MD5
