Network is slow for win9x users only

We have a database (SQLBASE 6.1.2) that runs on our server and all the executables also reside on the same server.  Recently something happened on the server that makes running the database application really slow for win 9.X users only.  All NT users are still fast using the same apps.  Is there something that would cause this?
