What is mrxsmb.sys and why does it take 10 of my 40 seconds of booting

My machine boots in 40 seconds with no problem, but I thought I'd explore bootvis just out of curiousity. I see nothing in the logs that looks particularly lengthy, except mrxsmb.sys, which takes 10 seconds in the "Network delay" category before "Boot done" at 40 seconds, and 11 more seconds in the next 15.

What is this driver?

I'm running XP Pro configured to log me on to a local corporate network (if available, which it's not when I'm at home, like I am now...) Perhaps my machine is looking for our corporate network? Would a dual boot (however that would be set up?) without the attempt to login to the corporate network, but still allowing the NIC to access the Internet for VPN might speed things up?

I have posted a 5 meg zip of the bootvis bin file here: http://www.campparadox.com/bootvis/

TIA
