There are two solutions to solve that:

1. Win95 uses clean text passwords for smb-file sharing. Win98 and WinNT and also W2K not. You still can use plain text passwords in W2k (=not encrypted). But for that you have to modify a registry key in W2k.
In the actual samba distribution is an .reg file which can do that automaticallly for you. Or take a loook on samba.org. Read also encryption.txt in the doc folder of your samba package.

2. It is possible that your samba server has limited client-access by subnet. Check the line "interfaces" in your smb.conf file and make sure, that the other subnet, which holds your win2k client, is also included.

If nothing helps, you should post more details. Which IPS, does your clients have and the smb.conf fiel itself.

good luck
