Win 2000 copy operation locks 2.0.7

Does this sound familiar to anyone?
SuSE Linux 6.3
Windows 2000 SP1
If we copy a bunch of files from the client box to the server box,
using Windows Explorer, usually happens with larges file such as
MP3s, and the files include sub-folders with more MP3s in them,
the samba server comes to a halt. All connected users can no
longer see the server box.
The Win 2000 box looks like it is continuing to copy, but after a
little while it produces a strange message...something about
directories nested too deep. It can no longer see the server box.
The server box has to be rebooted to get everyone going again.
Win 95/98 boxes can do the same trick with no problems. Win
2000 boxes lock up the server every time.
Got any advice?
