Win2000 Advanced Server Service Problems

Hi James,

no, VNC always starts AFTER login.  I've waited for the services to start
before login, and VNC never does.  I've waited hours.  The service is set as
a LocalSystem login service, but I have tried to get it to start with the
administrator's login too.

Thanks for any more ideas.
