    problem: takes long time (3-5mins) to pull up logon screen (novell client). startup is no problem.

    only did defragment.

    DNS issue maybe? I know 2000/XP clients on a Windows domain will sit forever at logon if DNS isn't setup right. Could be something similar.

    If the client is set up to never use cached login data, it can take a long time to log in as well. Check your domain policy.
