Copying a file to SAMBA server share fails?

I have a weird problem with my SAMBA server.

Every time I try to copy a file larger than 100k to a SAMBA share (mounted
locally on a Win98 machine) it comes up with the error msg: "Cannot create
or replace <filename>. The specified network resource or device is no longer

I also get this in my smb.log:

[2000/06/26 19:34:52, 0] lib/util_sock.c:read_socket_data(477)
  read_socket_data: recv failure for 47992. Error = Connection reset by peer

Smaller files copy over without any probs!?!

The SAMBA version is: 2.0.7.

It's running on RedHat 6.1 (2.2.12-20 Kernel).

The smb.conf file is:

  workgroup = levelone
  server string = Welcome to Level One
  wins support = yes

  domain master = yes
  domain logons = yes
  local master = yes
  preferred master = yes
  os level = 65


  unix password sync = yes
  update encrypted = yes
  encrypt passwords = yes

  preserve case = yes
  security = share

  comment = Dock your files in here
  path = /dock
  read only = no

  comment = Just a temporary area
  path = /tmp
  read only = no

  browseable = no
  read only = no

Any insights or ideas why this is so?

Kind Regards,

Mark Wylie.
