Sounds like there may be a problem with your /etc/smb.conf file. Make sure that the workgroup is setup and that it is set to use encrypted passwords. Then, as root, go to the linux box and type

smbpasswd -a foo

where foo is the username of the person trying to access the share from the windows 2000 box. Just for safety I'd restart the windows machine.

Here are some good tutorials on Samba:
