I need help

My 2000 Adv. Server becomes unavailable for minutes when we copy file to/from it larger than 1Gb.
there are events

Event Type:      Warning
Event Source:      Srv
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      2022
Date:            8/11/2004
Time:            14:27:16
User:            N/A
Computer:      W2KSRV01
The server was unable to find a free connection 19 times in the last 60 seconds.
Generally followed by:

Event Type:      Warning
Event Source:      MRxSmb
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      3019
Date:            8/11/2004
Time:            15:27:22
User:            N/A
Computer:      W2KSRV01
The redirector failed to determine the connection type.

It's an AD/file server, Windows 2000 Advanced Server SP4, we got 35 users, its a Proliant G3 Xeon P4 2.4GHz with 2Gb RAM, 180Gb HDD and 60GB free.
It is connected to two bridged catalyst 3548XL via Gigabit Ethernet and the users are 100Mbit.

I'm pretty sure my hardware setup is large enough for our 35 users, but can't figure out why it stops responding for minutes (crashing all the softs on users desktops) when we do a large file transfer...

Has anyone an idea?
