Compaq 4200tc wireless tablet
Win XP SP2

Novell login results window hangs and doesn't completely log in to the network

Actions taken:
Disabled firewall in XP
Put IP address of the server in the computers host file
Tried logging into the workstation and then logging in by the red N and the login still fails
Tried using the older version of the Novell client 4.9 sp1a

First experience having problems with the client

Any suggestions?
