    I have 2 XP machines (Host is XP Home and client is XP Pro) networked via crossover ethernet cable. If I boot the client after the host it dials up my internet connection automatically and I can't find anything loading at startup which would cause this. Is this normal?

    if you have ICS turned on, and the host is on when your turning on the client it is trying to initiate the connection to the internet through ICS therefore causing the dialing...atleast I think thats right..you'd think as a net tech i'd be able to remember this stuff but work has friend my brains heheh.
