Client Priority

We have a few machines that we would like to change the priority of the login so that a user can login to the desktop without having to login into the network. we have tried just leaving it checked to login to workstation only but this seems to confuse to many people.  Is there away to make it login into windows without seeing the novell client we would then put an ICON on the desktop for those who actually need the network.

Why not simply have people who need to login just to the desktop click the "Workstation Only" check-box on the Novell Client?

That is definetly the easiest solution and that is how we have tried to do it even with instructions setting next to the computer but they keep calling me because they can't login to the workstation and I have to tell them to check the box, so I was just trying to find a way that my phone would not ring for something so silly.
If you really want to do this, go to the workstation in question, and in the Novell Client Configuration, under Advanced Login,
change Initial Novell Login to NO. The user will get a generic Windows login instead of the Novell login prompt.
Those wanting to log into the network can still do so by right-clicking on the Novell icon in the system tray and choosing
Novell Login, or by going to the Novell Login shortcut on the start menu. You can put this on the desktop if you like.

Thank you this will keep it simple most of the users for these machines do not need the network and the few that do already know how to use the system tray.  Thanks again
