It's actually 491 sp2 client that we are using. I deleted the microsoft client and the Novell client comes up but I'm not sure that was such a good idea. On a different machine I just renamed the msgina.dll and that produced the same result. My problem is I don't like to have systems with weird configurations on them. I just imaged 21 machines with xp sp2 and novell client 491 sp2 and I am not experiencing this problem. I can't quite figure out what keeps turning off the Novell initial login setting.???
