You can minimise it, hiding is not possible. It will always appear in the Taskbar.
You can write a service which takes over the part of your dos-box and the login dos-box just starts the service and then closes itself. Maybe you can do even without the dos-box, but I think not within NT without an extra program.

How would you minimize it?
And how do you "write a service"?
Many thanks for your help so far, also for you comments on System Policies you've supplied previously.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

You can find out how to write a service by joining the Microsoft Developers Network.  (Available from microsoft).  To address your problem, If there is not any options in the Netware Client (or gateway service) then it can not be done.

If you are connecting to a Novell server and running its login script, you can use novell client 32.  This allows you to hide the box.

To minimise you can change properties of the Script.

My server is running NT Server 4.0, the workstations run NT Workstation 4.0.  There is no Netware, Novell, or gateway involved.

I have searched Microsoft Technet, MSDN, and The Windows NT Resource Kit, it does not describe how to get rid of the dos box.

Sorry
