[Samba] Random Network Failures

Okay, I've been working with Samba for a few years now, and I've figrued it 
out mostly on my own. Now I'm stuck and this problem is slowing down a MAJOR 
project in my shop.

Our solid SuSE 7.3 server's network is dying randomly. All services, not 
just Samba (2.2.1a) go out. However, it always happens when someone is 
accessing DVD projects from our NT 4.0 Spruce authoring systems.

I can make the server go down by trying to COPY a file from the server.

So, I have two questions:

1. Have you ever seen anything like this?

2. Where can I look/How can I find out what's causing the problem?



PS - I already swapped out the network card. It didn't help.

Surf the Web without missing calls! Get MSN Broadband.
