Do you have SP2 installed?  

There are a number of W2K issues that can cause this and many of them are fixed in SP2.

jhance is right, my AD took forever to bootup before I installed SP2 but after I installed it the bootup was reduced to less than 2 mins.

Do you have a permanent internet connection? If so, your DNS and DHCP requests will be send to your gateway. The server will wait for an answer before doeing anything.
