I have mixed mode enviorment and lots of XP workstations, 2000 workstations and NT workstations.

It takes up to 5 min to logon "applying computer settings" on some of the XP workstations but the others XP,2000 and NT are ok.

What is the problem?

You probably have a DNS issue on the XP machines.  Check to make sure that the DNS settings are pointing to the DNS on your network, probably your domain controller.  If you haven't setup DNS on any server yet, go ahead and do it and make sure you have all of your computers pointed to it for direction to the Internet.  I had this same problem with XP and resolved it by setting up DNS and changing all of my computers to go to this server as a DNS.  The setting on the DNS itself should be forwarded to your DNS from your ISP.  If you think this will help let me know and I'll try to answer any questions you might have.
