Well, one trick is to map a network drive to the AS/400, and have it
reconnect at logon.
That way you logon once when you boot the PC, and never again (well,
until you have to reboot because the PC locks up of course !).
Also, if you don't open an emulation session to the 400 right away, when
you DO eventually open one you won't have the logon delay.
