Logon times...how long is too long?

I need some input from people in the same situation, please.
We have locked down the desktops with a GPO, *.man profile, and folder
redirection. There is a logon script (rem' ed at the moment) in the users
Profile property tab with the Home folder set up on the server.
When I arrived here a few months ago Logon times were about 3.5 mins, I have
been able to reduce that down to about 45 secs, and in one case as fast as
24 secs. I realize that times will vary depending on traffic, what the
server is doing etc.
Clients P2 233 / Server P2 233.

If you are not using roaming profiles then 45 seconds on average seems too
long in my experience.  WIth roaming, it may be about normal for your network,
though probably still slower than the norm.

Make sure you are not synchronizing large files such as an Outlook or
Exchange folder file. Also make sure your DNS configuration and client spec
is absolutely correct -- these are the two most common causes of inexplicible
login delays.

Thank you for your reply,
The default_user.man profile has to be downloaded, but is fixed in size.I
assume that a roaming profile could grow rather large.
Exchange is handled over the  web once the user has logon. (On a campus)
The DNS.....I have it AD integrated, the DHCP hands out this address and the
next server's up the line. We are a separate Win 2Kdomain in a big Unix
pond. I am not sure at the moment how much other traffic is handled by the
router down in the Tel closet.

1. Long Long on time with AD

Here is my situation.  I was migrating a remote site that
has a DSL line and VPN into our network.  Our AD
infrastructure has multiple DC1 and DC2 in multiple
cities.  This location was logging on to our Atlanta
DC's.  In Atlanta I have ATLDC1 and ATLDC2.  The machines
that logged on to ATLDC1 log on just fine.  The machines
that logged on to ATLDC2 took about 30-40 minutes to log
on.  We are running a log on script with an audit
program.  I removed the logon scrip and logon program
same result.  I shut down ATLDC2 and forced the machines
to log on to ATLDC1 same result.  I removed problem
machine from domain and logged on to ATLDC1 same result.  
I took a laptop back to Atlanta with me that was having
problems.  Logged on to ATLDC1 over the LAN with no
problems.  I still have machines in Orlando that cannot
log on to ATLDC1 with a reasonable time.  Could ATLDC2 be
corrupt some how and wrote something to the registry.  I
am stuck.

Thank you in advance for any help anyone can offer.
