Different transfer speeds




I know someone's going to tell me to "upgrade my operating system" but humor me on this one, okay? I have an FC3 and an XP machine behind my firewall. On the FC3 machine, when I download anything from the net, I get a solid 330kB/s consistently. On the XP however, it rarely goes above 100kB/s. Can anyone tell me why? Both have 100Mbit nics in them, both connect to the same network hub, go through the same firewall, and the same cable modem. Why is the XP so crippled? (am I asking a rhetorical question?)
