I rejoin a XP domain PC.  After reboot, when I clicked the down arrow next to the Log on to field, it takes a long time for the "domain list" to disappear.  What should I check to get this resolved?

Thanks.

I've found that if you hit CTRL+ALT+DEL a couple of times while it says it's getting the list, it will provide you with a list right away.  I've never investigated this thoroughly, but I suspect it stems from DNS errors or just a bug in Windows trying to determine if there are any domain level trusts and in turn, other domains, that you might be eligible to logon to.
