Domain server prompts when booting

Everytime I reboot my machine, I get 3 annoying prompts that I have to pass through.  I just hit enter for each of them, and the machine then boots - but I would prefer they don't even come up.  I'm suspecting a simple setting somewhere, but I can't figure it out!  The prompts are:

1)  No domain server was available to validate password   (I hit Enter)
2)  Enter password for microsoft networking  ( I again just hit Enter)
3)  No domain server was available to validate password (another Enter)

How do I shut this off??

You can try to go to

Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Network.

First, make sure "Primary Network Logon" is at "Windows Logon", if not, change it and reboot.

Else, try this:

Most excellent - the link walked me through, and told me what I needed to do (even warned me that I would need my Windows98 disk).  Thanks !
