Additional "Administrator" login panel -- how to stop?

I have a local WORKGROUP of about 20 machines, all new Win2K Pro installs.  There's no
Domain and no Active Directory.  Individual Machines in a workgroup and on a Netware 5
network.

Each machine is deployed for a SINGLE workstation user.  User is defined with group
membership in the Administrators group (were Power Users but we found too many of
our individual-user-installed software packages wouldn't install properly without the Administrator).  This is NOT a security problem in this instance.

At the Alt-Ctrl-Delete login response, all users receive (as expected) the Novell Client
login panel.  They enter their username and password (which is already synchronized
with their Win2K username and password) and are successfully logged into the Netware
network.

At this point they're confronted with a (Windows?) login panel offering Administrator as the userid and a blank password panel.  In order to proceed they have to enter their own userid and password (the same strings they just entered an instant before to the Novell login panel).

If I switch a user to the Power Users group, they don't get this superfluous login panel.  But
they also can't install some of their software -- they have to log out, have ME log in, do the
install for them, I log back out, they log back in, etc....  A pain we both can do without.

How can I stop this superfluous login panel?

On the Novell login screen click the Advanced button. In there there is a tab called Workstation (are something like that). When you click the tab you should see the workstation user id Administrator listed. If you change to your users Novell login name. It should only pop up once more with their userid instead of Administrator. They should be able to put in the password and check the box to keep passwords the same. That should do it for you.
Let us know.
