My server is a pdc on debian linux and is running with a windows 2000 
member server that is hosting software for a flower shop.  The windows 
servers and all the workstations are freezing about twice an hour and stay 
froze for about 2-5 minutes.  They do not lock up at the same time but 
usually after the windows server locks they lock because they are trying 
to gather data from this flower software.  If I remove the network cable 
from the debian pdc it does not lock up any more.  The windows server and 
workstations have been there for at least a year and the debian box was 
just introduced then they started having the problems.  I replaced the 
network card after letting the two servers ping back and forth and there 
were errors, after I replaced the network card in the debian machine there 
were no more errors but the windows box still locks up.
