'RPC transaction timed out' error on clients

We are running 2.1.5 (old!!) on our school file server
and it has suddenly started giving errors to users logging 
on from Acorns with Omniclient I with the error shown on 
the client machine as in the Subject: line.  I believe 
Omniclient is a samba client (?)

PC's do not seem to be affected, nor do Acorns *already* 
logged on - "RPC communication failed on mount" for users 
wanting to log on afresh - I'm having to reboot the file 
server nearly as much as W95 ;-) as I have no idea which 
process on the file server is falling over - so that I 
might kill -1 <PID>.  ps -aux gives a reasonable looking 
list both before and after the happening.

Help gratefully received!
