Auto Login to MS Network on startup in Win 98SE ??

All,
Is it possible to restart a PC using WIN 98 SE and set it up so that it automatically logs on to the network?

I have two PC's on a home network, both WIN 98 SE.

I would like to select a restart from the start menu and have the box restart and login to the 'MS Networking' by itself.

Thanks,
Pat G.

Create a .bat file with one line to run IE or Netscape for example:
explore
Better yet check short cut target of IE (on Netscape) and copy to your .bat.
Save it in root with some good name (aaaa).
Add aaaa to Programs-Startup. Set "Internet Properties"- "Connections" to "Always dial...". reboot and see if this is what you want.

get Tweak UI from the internet (and i believe its in win98 cd too)

and go to control panel> add/remove programs > Windows setup > Have Disk > point to tweakui.ini (something like that) then when it displays Help on the right side close it.

back to control panel > you could see tweak ui go to network tab

hope that helps
