HOw do I login as a local user instead of domain user?

I installed NT workstation with network support, and made the system part domain 'xyz'.

I would like to log on locally (not onto the domain), but the drop-down for domain in the logon box only allows me to select domain 'xyz'.

On other systems I've seen, the drop- down allows me to select the local host name as the domain to logon locally.

How do I get the drop-down box to show the local host-name to allow local logon?

thanks

When you first installed the network station you've been asked to provide an admin password.
If you logon as admin you can always make a local user for a next logon.

It should do, unless the domain name is the same as the workstation name, in which case you'll only have one name.

Also, the machine policy may have disabled local logons.

If your workstation is part of a domain then you will find the drop-down box!!
