Unhappy windows locks up while accessing samba shares

I have a server running debian (testing) with samba. All permissions etc... work and i can create folders etc.... my problem is that when i try to transfer files on the server windows (win2000 prof) locks up. after rebooting and going back to the server i find that the file has been transferred with no problems

Also if i try to open any file on the server (it opens folders just fine) windows locks up as well. basically any (read) file access locks up windows, i would have put it down to faulty windows installation had i not found out that other people who also accessed the server got the same problem (windows lockup (win 2k & XP tested) ).

I believe it must be related to the server (possibly samba) but I have never had a problem like this before, what could be causing it? I thought it might have been due to a faulty hard disk on the server so i changed it, but still the same problem (note that from the server directly i can access the files with no problem)

Any help sorely appreciated, i am completely lost with this problem
