I have a laptop (Dell Inspiron) that I added to a Novell network. There
is a point immediately after I enter my novell user ID and password where
it says "Welcome to network" and then displays my drive mappings and then
we move on to the desktop icons.

This computer hangs for awhile (as in a minute or two) in between
the "Welcome to the network message" and the drive mappings. It's like
it's stuck in the middle.

Any suggestions?
