Problem browsing shared folders on terminal server

I am using a Windows 2000 professional workstation and am attempting to browse, look, load, etc. files located on a windows 2000 terminal server (also has citrix loaded).  When I go to network places, it loads extremely fast, when I select computers near me, again it loads fast, however when I attempt to browse the server (the one mentioned above) it takes 3-4 minutes to load the shared folders.  If I matriculate my way back out of the server it again takes 3-4 minutes to load and display the shared items.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to speed this up? There is no way I can continue to work like this.

Do you have any drive mappings from your workstation which may not be connecting properly - e.g. a mapping to a CD drive on a server/workstation not available at the moment?

I've seen this slow down explorer/my computer and file open/save from within apps.

I have two drives mapped but those load rather quickly, one is to a unix machine and the other is to a novell server.
