What do you mean by "RH 9 system connected to a W2K". How, dual NICS in
the RH system? Your connections seem convoluted. Is the Linksys switch
connected to one o the LAN ports of the Linksys wireless?

This doesn't make sense, because a reboot reruns the Samba daemons.

This sounds like a Belden KVM. I've seen this type of problem with them.
I have a cheap Linksys KVM where I did have a problem with my laptop
after my laptop went into standby mode, but the desktop system remained
stable. Another possibility is the W2K system might be running the mouse
at a different speed than the RH system.
