vista ultimate slow slow network with windows 2000 pro

My file server is running Windows 2000 Pro. Since I moved
from Windows XP to Windows Vista, my writing files to the
file server has gotten very slow. It seems that any file above
a megabyte or so requires several seconds to write. I have
checked the cpu load when I am writing to the file server
and it is just about zero.

We use a workgroup with mounted drives across our gigbit
network.

Does anyone have a clue what is going on here ?

I do not have this problem with our other file server running
Windows XP Pro.

Thanks,
Lynn McGuire
