Long wait for log on

Recently setup a test bed Server 2003 Small Business Edition on a box and XP
Professional clients. When logging onto the network through XP it takes 5-10
minutes. This seems like an eternity to sit and wait for the "Loading Your
Personal Settings" window to disappear. Is there a simple solution to this
problem I'm just overlooking?

Thanks, Darrell

These are useful cleanup instructions, but not germane to the OP's
problem. Almost all "long login" problems on a domain are because of
incorrectly set DNS and/or workstations trying to connect to a network
resource that no longer exists.
