windows xp pro pc has slow boot up

I have a windows xp pro pc that when the user logs in, they log directly into a server. It takes about 5 minutes to boot up. Any way to speed this up??

you can try using msconfig.exe to disable startup items one at a time and reboot to see what the offending process is.

Please open a cmd window and post the results of an ipconfig /all from the server and the same from the work station. I anticipate this being a name resolution issue.

Often a slow logon can be due to DNS pointing to the incorrect DNS server. If on a domain, the workstations network adapter under TCP/IP properties should only have your internal DNS server. Having the ISP's DNS server listed there can result in very slow logons.
Just a thought.

Sorry Keith, my eyes are not as good as they once were. I noticed you comments but missed the last part "anticipate this being a name resolution issue"
