Question Outlook2000 and identities in Win98

I tried to set up a small but fast Windows98 as an email terminal for different users. But
no matter what kind of login I choose in the network settings, Outlook2000 always uses
the same environment (mail accounts etc).

Is there a way to make it distinguish between different users? (User authentication is done
on a Windows NT PDC, Mail is on a Linux POP3) With NT/2000 this would work fine, but it takes
too long to boot the OS :-(
