I think you are a little too worried. The time difference between Norton loading and you actually connecting is not that long and there is precious little that can get into your system in such a short time - especially as your IP address will be dynamic and ever changing, it is not as though someone could be "waiting for you" to connect.
I would simply create a shortcut to your connection and drop it in the startup folder in Programs. This will then run the connection when you boot.
I am sure that there would be a way of creating a small program to allow a little delay before executing the connection but that is beyond me I am afraid.
