Ok, which piece of Samba are you actually using? What do you
*exactly* mean by "iMac with samba connecting to W2K3"? If
this means you issue 

smbclient //w2k3/share

on the command line, then yes, this is our business. If you
instead use the native iMac tools and mount //w2k3/share
into your local system. If the latter is the case (you are
using the native iMac GUI to connect to the server), then
no, no Samba piece is involved. In that case, you need to
contact your Apple support.

Please clarify what you are doing and apologies if I was not
precise enough.
