Disabling Windows Login Dialog

This has probably been asked a billion times, but since the searching of this site sucks the big kahuna, how do you stop the username and password dialog box from coming up at Windows 95/98 startup for a machine that is not connected to a network and will only be used by one person ever. Pressing ESC to bypass it is not acceptable and I've already tried deleting the PWL file too.

1) You can remove the Client for Microsoft Networks, but that will also remove the capabilities of saving your password to dial-up connections (probably will not matter since you usea cable modem)

2) Install TweakUI and have it automatically type your username.  Works perfectly every time.

I should also add I'm using a network card for use with a cable modem only, but I've had that for about 1.5 years now and this dialog comes up now that I've reinstalled Win 98 and all my apps on my PII 450. So what have I done differently this time that would cause the dialog to come up and how can I get rid of it? Delete all the network stuff and reinstall it all perhaps? I'm hoping there's an easier solution!!

Should've known that about MS Client as I had two computers networked peer to peer as I was transferring stuff from the old system to the new. I was using the second solution until I could find a way to disable the dialog completely. Thanks again!

That's easy, maybe you can change the registry entry which actually disables the login, that's what tweakUI does any way, right. I had to learn this one the hard way & dont think it deserves the 1 point.
