I don't have a great deal of experience with Samba, but
two or three things occur to me.

1. When you go from Linux to W2k, you may have some files
    with identical names, except for case differences.  I
    don't know if this would apply on a non-english system.
    But on an English-based system, "FILE" and "file", both
    in the same directory on Linux, will result in a single
    file with the contents of the last one transferred to
    the W2k system.

2. Try a directory comparison tool such as Beyond Compare
    (installed on NT/W2k/WXP) to see what the actual
    differences in your directory structures are. This might
    give you some clues.

3. Is it possible you lack permissions to access a few files?

4. Do you have 'socket options = TCP_NODELAY' set in smb.conf?

Are you transferring using drag and drop in Windows Explorer,
or some other method that might affect the transfer?
