Mac os 9.2 -log on server issue

I have a mac os 9.2 machine, when it boots up it tries to load up the apple share "shares" before it loads basically anything else, it keeps prompting me for password but doesnt take any password, until I cancel it out a thousand times , once cancelled everything loads up and it will then take the username and passwords I put into the apple share, it almost sounds like to me that Its trying to load up the shares before the network drivers , could that be the case ?

Delete the folder called "Servers" in your system folder.

You might check in both system folders and see if there is anything in the statup folders that would make the servers start up before the system itself.

Just a thought!

So Strung why what would deleteing the "servers" folder do ?  Is this a common problem.  Anyone have any other ideas as well ?

strungCommented:
The "servers" folder holds aliases (shortcuts) of servers that the workstation has previously connected to. It sounds to me that your problem is that your workstation is trying to connect to an out of date server. Deleting the servers folder or its contents will fix this problem, which is relatively common.

I take it that deleting the servers folder didn't solve the problem?

Check the Settings in your users and group file & in sharing set ups.

Look to see if there is any activity while your there, this may give you a clue as to what is going on and why it's happening.

Also: Check the Servers folder under the apple menu and see if there is anythuing there that would cause it.

If you find the problem it would be a good idea to clear the Pram during a restart. Hold down the
P+R+apple key+Option keys all at the same time until you hear three chimes then let go.

Good Luck!
