Net logon causes very slow windows startup

(I tried to post this yesterday, but can?t find it today, sorry if I?m double posting)

I run a computer rental business, and we handle lots of different computers. Normally we fix most problems ourselves, but now we have encountered a windows LAN logon problem with IBM Thinkcentre PC:s. And we have several, so we need to get it fixed.
They are about two-three years old, and we haven?t met this before, so it may be related to a recent windows update.
OS is XP Pro, and server OS is Server 2000.

The login process is way too long, five to ten minutes...or longer.
We notice that when we turn "net logon service" off, it runs very fast, but obviously in some networks that service is needed. We have tried it in two different LAN:s with same result. Also tried to put in another network card, without progress. None of our other several hundred computers have this problem, so it seems it is hardware related...or?

Where to start looking?
