some time ago I posted a note on how a Win9X client accesses policies, etc.

This completed the puzzle for me on when and why a Win9X client accesses
the NetLogon share during a network logon.

It turns out that you can switch off the loading of policies and control
them on other ways. Much more information than you probably wanted to know
is available at:
