there is no need to use Samba to distribute your Internetshare.
Why don't you setup a NAT Protocol? Just hide your W2K Box behind the
Linux Box.
When you work with DHCP you have to define a correct IP address pool.
The DHCP Server needs a static IP adress.
Maybe there is an conflict with the IP-addresses.
Hope this helps.
