Windows 2000 Advanced Server (very slow..at preparing network connections)

Hi,
 I have set up a Win2k server and i'm trying to run it in a network with 4 workstations. However i've ran into a problem.. it takes forever to start it up. It seems to hang on the preparing network connections screen.. at first it took about 5/6 minutes to start.. but now after i have installed a USB printer it takes forever.. actually i have never gotten past that screen after that.. Can anyone help me?
and is there a way to temporary bypass the screen (and not have to do it in safe mode?)


thanks

I would guess you have set up the DNS wrong. Check your settings, point the dns to the server itself if this is a local network not connected to the internet.
