SubjectPoor Performance for ethernet bonding

I have tried to use ethernet network interfaces bonding to increase

Bonding is working fine, but the performance is rather poor.
FTP between 2 machines ( kernel 2.4.4 and 4 port DLink 100Mbit ethernet
results in a transfer rate of 3MB/s).

Any Hints?

here is my setup for the channel bonding

insmod bonding
insmod tulip
ifconfig bond0 netmask broadcast
ifconfig bond0 down
./ifenslave -v bond0 eth2 eth3 eth4 eth5
ifconfig bond0 up
route add -host dev bond0

Many thanks for every help
