Last update - finally the problem is fixed!
A rather interesting and perplexing solution...
My Win2k machine uses a D-Link USB wireless ethernet device.
It's what the file copies were using throughout this whole
I added a regular NIC to the Win2k machine and ran a long
cable to the Linux Samba client and tried copying the same
file - it worked!
What's REALLY weird is now the wireless works fine too!
I have no idea how, but adding the regular copper NIC fixed
my problems. Maybe disabling/re-enabling the wireless adapter
did it, maybe adding the new card did it, maybe the stars
just aligned right... who knows... this is Windows we're talking
about, after all.
What I still don't understand is why other Samba clients could
always copy okay from the same Win2k machine over wireless.
