What are you using to connect? (smbclient, smbmount? which side is client?)

What samba version? If not 2.0.7, start with upgrading.
(2.0.7 adds workarounds for win2k bugs, as I understand it :)

Have you searched the archives for messages on win2k and bad samba
performance? I think someone else has brought this up.
