I have no problem with speed from win2k. Did you leave the stock line:

socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192

  Subject: [Samba] Slow transfer between Win2k and Samba

  Well as placed before, I have a problem with Win2k and Samba. Transferring
files under Win2k on the client to the Samba Server is extremely slow. I
have about  kb/s upload....
  After searching at the web, nothing could help me, so I tried this mailing
list. Of course where would be the guys that know a lot of Samba ;-)

  Secondly I thought maybe NTFS and Samba cannot communicate with each
other. Because I have a Win98/win2k dual boot system, I tried the same under
Win98. But (un)fortunately the results were good (500 kb/s). So it still
could be a FAT/NTFS problem....
  I installed Win2k with a FAT32 filesystem... but that does not solve the
problem either :-(

  So, finally I have this problem: transferring files under a Win2k client
from/to a Samba server runs _very_ slow (18 kb/s). What could be the
problem? Or better what could be a solution?

  thnx for any help.
