I've searched these groups and the internet for an answer and can't
find it!
I loaded win98se onto an old Compaq Deskpro XL 5100.  I did this from
a hard drive that had been reformatted.  I am trying to get a dial-up
internet connection established. The settings are good because they
work on two other computers but when I try it on this one, you hear
the modem connect, and then a dialog box appears called User Logon and
asks for user name and password.  It is autofilled in with the dial-up
connection name and password, but that doesn't work.  I tried the
windows 98 user logon which is just Anonymous with no password, that
doesn't work.  What do they want or how do I get rid of it?

My system is set up with CLient for MS networks as primary logon;
tweak is installed to log on automatically at start-up, Dial up
connection is ppp, has only enable software compression and tcp/ip
checked, can anyone help me with this?

Thanks much, Bevin B.
