Yes I have had massive problem's with Win2k's TCP/IP stuff.
It mostly turned out that they where faulty installations.
The most issues I had with windows 2000 server products.
Just recently I had the problem that some service blew the
system up what I think was a memory leakage (i found out by
the big bucket of memory I had to clean up when I removed
the machine temporarly from it's service).
Also I have this other client that has 2 faulty 2k server's that
the networking part is so messed up the machine takes about
5 minutes to get to the part where it hang's 25minutes in
"preparing network connections".
(this where only 2 examples of about 20 I could count up)
To put this all together YES there are massive ussues. Maybe
"clone" an identical system with the same stuff installed and just
see if it's a messed up 2k installation or so.
