    OS 9 question, if someone can help:

    When I boot into OS 9, it goes through it's paces all the way up to the Finder, then it sits there frozen, waiting to connect to a network volume. I'm talking like 2-3 minutes wait, in the meantime I can't do anything. Is there any way to avoid this? Needless to say it's really annoying and I disconnect any network volumes before restarting/shutting down.

    Go to chooser>appleshare and go through the steps necessary to connect to a server. Then, a list of servers should come up with check boxes next to them. Uncheck any that are checked. That should do the trick. The check is there to tell it to connect to that server at startup time.

    In addition I would trash anything in the servers folder in the system folder. The network browser tends to put recently connected server aliases in this folder. Sometimes the chooser and network browser won't clean up after each other.

    that happened to my sister's iBook!

    I will redirect her to this page, because she often complained of this.

    thanks,
