When user 1 goes home. I would guesss that he is trying to log into RAs with
dial-up networking while logged into the win95 station as user 2/ I believe
that windows may be sending conflicting messages on who is logging in and
password. So Make sure they loginto windows networking locally as the same
person they are using RAS to dial-in
