I run XP SP2 clients connecting to FC4. I do my own compilations
of samba from svn. Currently Version 3.0.23pre2-SVN-build-15985.
I use this line in smb.conf:
socket options = SO_KEEPALIVE IPTOS_LOWDELAY TCP_NODELAY SO_SNDBUF=65536 SO_RCVBUF=65536
Maybe the lack of the keepalive is working against you.
Nothing else stands out to me.
