I have one Windows 2000 Sp4 machine running on my network that seems
very slow to connect to the Netware servers. There is a consistent
delay of almost 60 seconds between "Loading your User settings" and the
display of the login script window (the execution of the logon script
and drive mappings is actually very quick). None of the other machines
on the network have displayed this problem.

This is a management PC supplied to use by our plotter dealer to run
a special pogram to use some of the special plotter functions. It runs
that program, and virtually nothing else. Unfortunaltely, since it's a
"free" computer, it's put together with the cheapest possible parts.
Much below what I would buy for my users, anyway.

To be honest, I really don't know much about what happens at that
point in the logon login sequence, so it might well not be anything to
do with the client. I'm open to any ideas. This is one of those
non-critical, but annoying things that I think my users would appreciate
being fixed.

So, any advice cheerfully accepted.

PC: Celeron 2.0 Ghz 256mb Ram, Windows 2000Sp4

Network: Netware 6.0sp5. 6.5sp4, Windows 2003.

NW Client: 4.90 sp1A with NDPS.
