Hi everyone. I am pulling my hair out over this. I have a laptop with win98 and a dell wireless pc card. It works great, but I need this laptop to login to the domain (NT domain served by a windows 2003 server) so that i can access file shares completely and other programs. The problem is that when you start up the laptop you come to the login screen, but at that point the pc card is not connected to the network. Windows has to load the little utility program for the card before it will connect. However, i cant do that until i login which i cant do unless the card can connect to the domain server lol.

Is there a way to do this? Basically, i need the card to connect at boot so that i can login to the domain.

Currently, i am just logging into the computer (not the domain) and i have some network shares with limited functionality that will be connectable after the utility program loads completely.

thanks :)
