accessing windows shares going very slow

I have a LAN set up with 4 windows 2003 servers and 1 xp machine and my fedora 8 box. When I connect to the main server where all the shares are kept, it takes a very long time for anything to show up on the screen. Then when I click on the on any of the shares it pops up with password authenitcation. I put in the password then it sits there thinking for about 5 minutes before it tells me there is nothing in there (and there is nothing in any of the folders). Why is it taking so long?

on a side note. No matter what user name i use to connect to the server through windows share it always allows me to access the same things, even though they all have different permissions. Any ideas?

Post this as a bug in Ubuntu Launchpad.

Have some info out of your logs would be helpful, both here and in Launchpad.
