You just mean uptime? I have had more than 3 month no problems uptime with
samba so far, an that was only terminated by power failure of the whole
building :)

My best uptime is 10 months,so far. It would be longer, but I had to do
system shutdown and replace some hardware. Samba 2.0.7 runs there
as file/print server and domain logon server.
If nothing change, soon, uptime will reach 1 year !

You should do that, yes.

IMHO you'll need samba TNG for Win2k clients.
Have a look at the FAQ at:
