Connection reset by peer

I run Samba 2.0.5a on Linux 2.2.12 (Slackware).

My clients get an error regularly (Windows95) "Network path not found"
and then they lose their connection completely.

The server logs the following:
[1999/09/07 17:30:01, 1] smbd/service.c:make_connection(521)
  sbit12 ( connect to service sbitdata as user sbit (uid=1000, gid=100) (pid 134)
[1999/09/07 17:33:10, 0] lib/util_sock.c:read_socket_data(507)
  read_socket_data: recv failure for 4. Error = Connection reset by peer
[1999/09/07 17:33:10, 1] smbd/service.c:close_cnum(557)
  sbit12 ( closed connection to service sbitdata

This happens unpredictable, very strange.

Does anyone know how I can solve this problem, because it is very
annoying :( and keeps us from working.

I searched the internet, but there were only people with the same
problem, but no solutions.

Thanks in advance,
