No, I am not getting the login prompt, but I do have Microsoft Network
client enabled.  Originally the box had something called "Microsoft
Family" installed as a network client, but I deleted it (assuming that
"client for MS Network" would be sufficient).

Yes, the primary network logon is set to "Client for Microsoft Network".

Yes, I get the logoff option ("Log off USER" in the Start menu)

I have set up the new machine just like the others we have, the only
difference is that this is the first Windows 98 box (all the others are
Windows 95).
