Can someone provide the exact steps to monitor disk I/o?

I currently have a Server 2003 R2 Server with wireshark installed, about 8pm every day the server freezes for around 5mins, this is the period where everyone logs off in the evening.

Wireshark monitors network traffic not disk I/O. Unless you are assuming that the network traffic is causing the high disk I/O Wireshark won't be much help, even then you may be better off just monitoring the NIC packet counters using Performance Monitor to see if there's a correlation between the disk I/O and network I/O.
