Is this problem random, or could it be dependant on logon used at ME machine, do you use different logon names, or sometimes bypass the windows logon on the ME machine.

Something basic.....do you HAVE any shares on the Win2K box? Make sure you have at least one share available.

From the MS KB (Its about Win98 but ME is largely based on 98):
PSS ID Number: Q232890
Article last modified on 10-22-2000
 
The information in this article applies to:
 
 - Microsoft Windows 98
- Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition
-----------------------------------------------------------
 
IMPORTANT: This article contains information about editing the registry.
Before you edit the registry, make sure you understand how to restore it if
a problem occurs. For information about how to do this, view the "Restoring
the Registry" Help topic in Regedit.exe or the "Restoring a Registry Key" Help
topic in Regedt32.exe.
 
SYMPTOMS
========
 
When you attempt to connect to a network share on a Microsoft Windows NT
4.0-based server using a Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path, you may
experience one or more of the following symptoms:
 
 - You may be unable to gain access to the network share.
 
 - You may repeatedly receive authentication error messages.
 
 - You may be unable to gain access to any other network shares that were
  working previously until you restart your computer.
 
CAUSE
=====
 
This issue can occur because the server is notifying the Windows 98/95 client
that the client can have x1FF pending SMB commands to the server, but the client
stores this value in a character, producing 0xFF. This value is then incremented
to account for the SMB just received, and the client now interprets that it can
have 0 outstanding commands to the server so it cannot send any more SMBs.
 
RESOLUTION
==========
 
WARNING: Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems that may
require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that
problems resulting from the incorrect use of Registry Editor can be solved. Use
Registry Editor at your own risk.
 
For information about how to edit the registry, view the "Changing Keys and
Values" Help topic in Registry Editor (Regedit.exe) or the "Add and Delete
Information in the Registry" and "Edit Registry Data" Help topics in
Regedt32.exe. Note that you should back up the registry before you edit it. If
you are running Windows NT or Windows 2000, you should also update your
Emergency Repair Disk (ERD).
 
To work around this issue, use Registry Editor to delete the following value in
the following registry key on the server:
 
Value type: REG_DWORD
Value: x1FF
 
   HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanManServer\Parameters\MaxMpxCt
 
-d
