Windows 2k Server, help requested

As some may remember I took the Microsoft exam 70-240, Accelerated something for Win NT 4.0 MCPs.


Well I failed it. I never got around to studying for it. Surprise surprise.

So I found out I know absolutely nothing about networking. Well, not nothing, just not a lot.

Well here's my question, is there a way to speed up user athentication? It takes a long time...

I'm using roaming profiles, but there's not much in it. I mean, I just set up the account, configured it as a roaming profile. That's it. Haven't done anything else, but it just takes minutes to log on.

Even when using an account without a roaming profile, it takes a few minutes.

I used to have this problem before, but I figured it was the computer. Very slow, met MS's min requirements.

Well my new Server is a Pentium 3 500mhz, 256 MB PC100 RAM, I think a 7200RPM 12GB HD, I'm using a Diamond HomeFree PNA USB 10 MB NIC and an Intel 10/100 PCI NIC.

Computers are currently connecting over the 10 MB connection. I'd like them to utilize the 100MB connection first

The 10 MB connection exists because there are over computers on the network. These computers only use the 10MB connection. One of these computers acts as a proxy server for internet access.

I'm using TCP/IP.

Two goals to accomplish
*decrease logon authentication time
*utilize 100 MB connection over 10 MB connection

Thanks in advanced.
