Unhappy strange server "error"

I have a server at home, running Slack 9.0.
(no X or anything like that installed)

It's running as mail server (postfix), web (apache 1.3.33 and PHP4.3.10),
mysql, DNS (BIND).
I've just set it up as FTP server also (proftpd).
Here's how it "looks":
/dev/hda2 = / (home, var, everything here) 2.1GB
/dev/hdb1 = /ftp/share1 76GB
/dev/hdc1 = /ftp/share2 10GB
/dev/hdd1 = /ftp/share3 10GB

This is all running A-OK but there is one thing not right.
I've tried uploading stuff from my windows-boxes to this server, but it stalls after about 13MB each time . This happens from all computers I've tested. Download is OK, no stall there.
Tried SSH Secure File Transfer Client, and that downloads files just fine, but also stalls when uploading. (Between 8 and 14MB)

Lastly I've set up Samba, and that shares the folders just fine. Accessing from windows boxes and download works perfect. Upload however stalls, but this time at about 22MB...

The network is running 100Mbps Full-Duplex.
My server has a 8139too compatible NIC

Anyone got any idea what this might be????
I'm very tempted to just plain and simply install slack 10.0 (no I don't want to install 10.1), and config everything from scratch again.

PS! The server is only accessible via LAN, no internet connection at this time. (Date for connection to DSL is June 7th. .....hopefully)

Very strange.
One possible explanation is that your entire network is running full-duplex, except this server.

I'm not at the server now, and I don't remember exactly what dmesg said, but it said eth0 was running 100Mbps Full-Duplex

Most likely I'll install fresh tonight.
(Downloaded Slackware 10.0 disc 1 and 2)

From my transfer log
Received 696287232 bytes in 1517.63 secs(458.80 KBps).
(disc 2, didn't save the transfer info of disc 1)

Well, it's done.
Backed up important config files and reinstalled the server last night.
(Now running Slack10.0, std 2.4.26 kernel)

Also made some changes to system-setup:
/dev/hda1 = 256MB swap
/dev/hda2 = 3GB /
/dev/hda3 = 3.5GB /home
/dev/hda4 = 3.5GB /var

/dev/hdb1 = 76GB /share/1
/dev/hdc1 = 10GB /share/2

Started Samba and voilá: Copied everything important from my laptop to the server. (25-30GB)

Now I just have to wait for my DSL line, and the server will be online.
