IBM T43, 1.8 GHZ processor with 1 GB ram running XP pro SP2. Novell 4.91
client. Not a member of a domain. After typing my username and password
I get a black screen with a mouse cursor for a full 2 minutes, another
minute of my blank desktop, then another minute and a half to load icons.

If I press ctrl+alt+del after typing my username and password (while on
the black screen) everything loads fast!

Does the same if workstation only is check with NO network connection.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
