I've seen problems like this due to network card problems.

Do/does the system(s) in question exhibit any problem when moving multiple
files via other means, for example an FTP MGET * operation or SMB multiple
file copy operation?

I'm not using SMB between the W2K and repository system, but I haven't
noticed any problem using SMB between the W2K and the other Linux Samba

However, an scp of a single large (~16MB) file from the W2K  system
to the repository system exhibits slow and sporadic throughput of
~0-100 Kbps.  The same operation to a different Linux system
completed normally with > 1Mbps consistent throughput.  Could there
be some sort of incompatibility between the NIC's on the W2K and
repository Linux system?

I don't remember off hand what NIC's I'm using in these 2 system, but
probably 3COM 905B and/or Adaptec 6911A (tulip) cards.

Does it make a difference if the machines are on a 10 or 100 Mhz leg of the

All the machines are connected by a single 10Mbs hub.
