Power Point in Novell Enviroment

At work we are running netware 4 and 5 servers..  Some of the users are usuing powerpoint to create presentations.  When the presentations are small (3-4 megs) they open up quickly.  But when they get up to 10 to 20 megs they take up to twenty minutes to open.  The network is a 100mb network.  The end users machines are Dell 400 mhz plus with 128mb ram and running 95 and 98.  We have played with various cache settings in the netware client and various settings in Windows.  It seems like a recent problem but nothing to associate it with..  We even tried 256mb ram and that did not help at all.  Its obvious that the larger the file the longer it should take but it seems to long..

Any help would be appreciated..
