Hello Tamas,
That's a wierd one...
What version of Internet Explorer are you using?
In IE 5, if you rightclick on IE icon, go to properties, and look under
general settings,
there is a "Current Location" for "Temporary Internet Files Folder", and
then a 
amount of disk space to be used box.
What does yours report for Current location?
Are you using roaming profiles for your win2k clients that log into the
samba domain?
If you are, check the profile directory and the "Temporary Internet Files"
directory under
that users profile directory; perhaps there is a permissions problem on the

Just a thought - I have seen several threads on this list discussing various
problems with profiles and Win2k, but have not really worked much with them.
Perhaps with more info someone else on the list more familiar with profiles
(if this is indeed the 
issue) may be able to lend a hand.

Hope this helps,
