I'm not sure to understand...what do you mean by "do you log in to 
windows networking"??...these machines are not within a windows domain 
if it's what you are asking about. All the machines have users created 
locally with local authentication, there's no other windows server on 
the local network (only one linux server with samba with some shares 
acting as file server, and some windows clients).

We have something like 20 servers deployed in this way and this happens 
on every installation, only with windows xp and windows 2003 
machines...bizarre :(

Any idea will be more than welcome.
