Client 32 logon not appearing at startup

I have four Windows 95 workstations on an Ethernet segment that do not present the Client32 GUI logon screen at startup. The users have to click on Shut Down - Close all programs and log on as a different user in order to get the logon. All users are using 3Com NIC's. I have already checked for Autologon in the registry, the frame type in IPX/SPX and uninstalled/reinstall Client32. I have even reinstalled Windows 95 (upgrade).

When installing Client 32, make sure the checkbox for "update ODI drivers as necessary" is NOT CHECKED.  

The 3COM cards (3c509's) have a problems initializing the plug and play in many instances.  If the ODI update is done, then they  can exihibit this behavior.  

To resolve, UNINSTALL the client 32 using the Novell provided uninstaller, and reinstall Client32.

Another solution that I have not tested, but have heard can help is to turn off the plug and play settings with teh 3C5x9cfg utility.
