I have a network of 20 users and all except one has been able to connect to the network via SBS 2003. So far everytime I tried to connect using the SBS, it would go through to the second reboot. I then put in my username and password, it just hangs up on "applying personal settings". Do you have any solutions to this?

By connecting using SBS to you mean joining the domain? Sounds like DNS on the PC may be configured incorrectly. It is recommended the PC's network adapter be set to "obtain an IP address automatically", the SBS be the DHCP server, and you join the computer to the domain by using the web connection interface:
http://YourSBSname/connectcomputer

If still having problems could you post the results of:
ipconfig  /all
It may help to diagnose.

I double checked the DNS and that was fine. It turned out to be a conflict with the local profile.
