Password dialogue

By searching for help here I found the answer to a concern I was having with ZoneAlarm setup... Thanks.

As a result I now am able to share my printer successfully with another pc.. hooray...

However, somthing else has arisen...

The mains PC runs WinXP home... the other runs 98se. I ran the wizard on the XP machine, which prompted me to create a wizard on a floppy, to run on the 98 pc... which I then ran, seemingly OK.

All has worked, but I'm now in a position where the 98 pc requires a network password as part of it's boot up... There is no password, so clicking "OK" or "Cancel" allows bootup to continue, but I really don't want this box at all.

It is only a spare, backup machine, but it's slow and takes ages to boot. When used I turn it on and make a cuppa! I don't want to intterupt the cuppa making to just press a button. (Slight exaggeration there, for effect, but you get the idea!)

Is there a way to be rid of it? There are no user accounts, just the one user, i.e anybody.

Thanks in advance,
