What vmware ethernet virtual device are you using?  It's in the 
VM/settings under network adapter.  You get to choose vmxnet or vlance.  
vmxnet is the newest, fancy, fastest, lastest, greatest, but I still use 
vlance because it seemed to be more compatible.

It's not samba.  But it might be an issue between the virtual adapter 
and the underlying host OS.
