Something that came up on this forum a wee while ago speeds the startup by
not showing the splashscreen.

Get out your scalpel and open up Client99SE.INI, found in C:\WINNT (if
you're running NT, otherwise you'll have to hunt it down).  In the section
labelled:
[System Preferences]
 insert the following text on a new line:
DisplaySplashScreen=False

It makes a bit of a difference.
