If Windows is managing your wireless card and you have the Intel Proset
Wireless management software.
Switch to the Intel Proset Wireless management and your slow Bootup to
the Novell login screen is cured. Just be sure to re-enter your SSID
info into the Intel Proset Wireless management tool. It was taking up
to two minutes to get to the Novell Login screen before I figured this
one out. I haven't had any problems since.
