    Thanks to everyone (especially Charlie R) who responded. I tried glee's
    procedure in part, there was no "Quick Logon" in mine. It didn't work.

    I used the link (see below) presented to me by Charlie R. What really
    fixed my problem, I unchecked "Log On To Network". WOW! Now
    I can log on in a "flash"!


    From (thanks) www.altohiway.com/cgi-bin/knowledge/147.html :

    As default, Windows 9x sets options on a Dial-Up account which aren't
    actually necessary. This can often cause the "Verifying Username and
    Password" to take a very long time.

    The solution is to follow the below steps:

    1 - Double-click My Computer

    2 - Double-click Dial Up Networking

    3 - Right click on the Dial Up Connection you use, and click Properties

    4 - Click on the Server Types tab

    5 - Uncheck 'Log On To Network', 'NetBEUI' and 'IPX/SPX Compatible'

    6 - Click OK

    7 - Dial up again. You should find that the logging in process is now much
