All of our Dell's have a problem with getting to the login screen. I have
tried multiple 4.9x clients and they all exhibit the same symptoms. With
no Novell Client, they get to the login screen in less than 40 seconds.
With the Novell Client, they take almost 3 minutes. This happens on
desktops and notebooks. We are mainly HP/CPQ and have no problems with
those machines. All my machines are XP SP2. The 4.83 client does not
cause this problem, it is something new in the 4.9x.

Has anyone else seen this? I have seen some other users complain about
Dell's and the client, both on forums and other sites, but I don't see a
