Startup taking forever, server 2003

By mungujakisa ·
I have a Server 2003 Enterprise installation on one server, for a small network. Without AD, the OS would load fast enough. When I configured AD, the server starts up and never gets off the "Preparing Network Connections" level, but doesn't hang. What could be the problem? I really will appreciate any help offered.
Thanks in advance.

Why do you think it hasn't hung if it isn't getting off the preparing network connections?

Only immediate thought would be to check you are physically connected to your LAN and that it is live.
