I've got several machines 98SE machies, but not all, that reboot after you 
enter your username and password on the login screen and hit enter. No 
noticable pause. The account used doesn't matter, and only 2 do it 
consistently. The rest do it only sometimes or for most of the workstations, 
work just fine. I'm using a Samba 3.0.6 as a NT domain controller.

The weird thing is if I go into the network properties on the 98's and tell 
them not to login to the domain, they work fine. I can access the shares on 
the server without problem (provided I use the correct username and 
password). The server logs show nothing abnormal. These are not new 
workstations either. They have been using the server fine for months until 

A google search turned up someone else having the same problem, but no 
solution. I've scanned for viruses and spyware and found nothing but a few 
tracking cookies. I've removed and reinstalled all network components (on the 
clients) without success. I've update the client network drivers without luck 

Anyone have any ideas?
