    God I hate these things, haha. Not that they're inferior, it's just that I'm expected to support the 20 or so we have left, with zero mac knowledge.

    I have this one G3 that insists on connecting to a server that we no longer have. It does this as soon as you boot up, and it takes 16 "CANCEL"s to get rid of the dialog box. The dialog box says 'Connect to the file server WIN2K as:', then shows the username of a teacher who no longer works here. As such, we don't know her password...though it does not matter because there is no more WIN2K.

    Where is this setting, and how can I get rid of this? Thanks!

    apple-period for the win. do that a couple times and it should stop (that is if you're being presented with a dialogue box for it).

    Unless you have expensive, or very important OS9 specific aplications, I see no reason for you to stick with OS9. You can download an older version of OSX for free from apple. It would make your life alot easier.

    Try this:

    Go into Macintosh HD -> System Folder -> Servers -OR-

    Macintosh HD -> System Folder -> Startup Items.

    Delete all the servers you see in either folder and see if that helps.
