Looking for help regarding this issue- We have multiple systems at our office, but only a couple of them exhibit this problem. When I start up the system, the 'connect to server' dialog pops up shortly after the finder loads, and proceeds to beachball indefinitely. The only way around this is to disconnect the ethernet cord, force-restart the finder, then plug the ethernet cord back in. I wonder 1) what causes it to try to connect automatically, since other computers we have don't, and 2) why does it become unresponsive? I have deleted all the startup items to see if that was the problem, but that didn't help. Running panther with all the updates.
