The iMac's looking for a server it once connected to but is no longer there.

Try deleting the AppleTalk Preferences, AppleShare Prep (in the Preferences folder inside the System Folder), and anything in the Servers folder (inside the System Folder)

Then reboot.

This could also be caused by TCP/IP set to load automatically (as opposed to when needed) and no network connection present.
