    Hi,

    I'm migrating computers to windows XP. We're using a windows 2000 domain controller for security purposes and have mapped drives through novell (I'm a semi-lowly tech so I *think* that's what each are for). Anyway, when setting up computers, a few of them after installing novell client 4.83 with the patch persistently give a windows login first, then the novell login. The majority of the computers do what we'd like, namely a novell login that also logs you into the domain/win2k thingy. Is there any way I can make the few rebellious computers have the novell login appear first and do all the work? I've tried reinstalling novell client and looking through various novell, network, and xp services settings and can't seem to turn anything up. Any comments are appreciated.

    It should be right in your network properties where you can change the priority for which client is used first. Set the primary login for the Novelle client.

    well....maybe that's the case with win98 and 2k (I specifically remember that setting in 98 at least) but there's no such option around that area with XP that I can find....any suggestions, anyone?
