samba problems

I installed samba-2.0.10-2 in my RH 7.1 and want to share linux drivers
and windows 2000 drivers.

I have several questions to ask:

1.  When I access linux drivers from windows 2000, if I use command line
or emacs, the speed is OK.  However, when I use MS products, e.g. notepad,
it is very slow when I clicked on "Look in" drop down menu in open dialog
for the first time.  It becomes normal when I do it after that if I do not close
this program.  I understand it is slow when I map network driver but is it supposed
to be like this for notepad?  Or does my configurations have some

2.  When I access win2K driver from my linux box, the whole system hanged
twice in one day(I had to reset the computer).  I am afraid to do that
again.  Did anyone have the similar experience?

3.  I also tried to update to samba.2.2.2 using the RPM mentioned in this
list.  However, There are too many dependencies, samba--> samba-common --> --< ....  It seems there is no way to install samba.2.2.2
untill I upgrade all the RPMs dependent on  Am I right?

Thanks a lot.  I attach my smb.conf as below.
