I have suse 7.2 here with samba 2.2.0a, an my 2 windows 2000 machines see 
the samba server just fine. I then upgraded to 2.2.1a an it was still seen, 
so I would say that it is compatible with w2k. I am letting the samba 
server also be a wins server.

Now I have had some trouble with a couple windows me machines not seeing 
the server in the my network places,  but i got around that by manuelly 
setting up the share an its work now. After opening my network places I go 
to tools an then click on map network drive an manuelly give it the path 
statement to the server an share an it just works from there. (ex 
\\horizon\horizon\  ).
