Are the Windows machines making a wired or wireless connection? My wife's WinXP Home machine frequently loses it's mind when attached over a wireless connection, while my Ubuntu laptop keeps working fine using the same AP.

Is the Samba server also acting as a PDC in a Windows Domain or is it just a Workgroup-style sharing situation?

That info may help to hone in on where the errors are occurring.
