Make sure your "server" and PC's are configured correctly for the switch - the NICs should be Autonegotiate.

How do you know it's "slow" - compared to what?  How big are the files?  How many people are accessing at the same time?

What is a long time? 5 seconds, 30 seconds, 5 minutes?

How is the server mapped on the workstations, by fqdn (server.domain.com), name (server) or ip address? If by name or fqdn, what are the dns settings for the workstation? Do you run internal dns, do they have a mix of internal and external resolvers?

Is it slow for everyone or just sepecific clients? Is it always those same clients?

Is this a domain environment or just a workgroup?

Are you configured the win2k3 as a domain controller ( active directory + DNS server) or only in workgroup ..if its domain controler check the network settings of that pc means properly take that pc in domain and perticular DNS settings if you are using itnernal dns server check the IP's are in proper range and dns adresses ( primary & alternative) .Primary add should be win2003 server IP not ISP DNS addreses coz ISP DNS are in forwarders of DNS server.

Mapping folders.  Perhaps name resolution is the problem.  Do you have the server set up for WINS and DNS name resolution?
