Is there a Domain policy to enforce this on all WinXP machines?
The default on WinXP of this machine policy is disabled.  WinXP
always pretends that everything is alright when the machine
boots up and presents the user with the Logon banner.  When
the user logons right away after boot up, he cannot access all
resources that are on the network because XP is doing the
network connection in the background.

I always go around and change the local machine policy to
always wait for network at startup or logon.

Thanks in advance for your help.
