Some win98SE's has a problem: even if you specify "ms networks" as
primary logon, you don't get the network login prompt at boot-up and you
cannot access the network, unless you logoff/logon and then get the
login prompt.

This is caused by the above reg key. Deleting it solves the problem.
If you don't have the key then your problem is another one.

what's the output? See if it's different from another win9x (win95/win98
are the same).
