    type in your username and password it takes very long to log in."It shows
    obviously the loading your ... and applying your.... screen". Why is this
    cause it drive me crazy when evryone calls me to ask that....pls , pls help

    b)On the same network there is 1 or 2 pc's that keep on showing "there is a
    IP adress conflict on the network....." All the pc's is set to use the dhcp
    on exactly the same base.If i put another pc in the place of these "faulty
    ones" then i don't get that message.

    thanks for you effort and time

  2. Exessively long logon times are usually caused by inappropriate
    DNS settings.

  3. Make sure that the clients point to your DNS Servers. I have had experience
    where the system can take over twenty minutes to log in, and with the DNS
    Settings correct will take under two.

    With the IP Address conflict, try running an ipconfig /release on both
    workstations and then ipconfig /renew to see if this free's up the conflict.

    a) Make sure your xp pro clients have their DNS pointing to your server.

    b) Are you sure there isn't another DHCP server providing ip addresses?
