XP Fast Logon registry entry??

In the group policy of XP there is a setting under Computer Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ System \ Logon \ Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon.

I want to enable this setting and am wondering if there's any other way to do it outside of using group policy. I'm guessing this has got to be a registry entry somewhere. Can anyone tell me where to find or what to add to enable this particular setting via the registry?

I believe what you are looking for is:
SyncForegroundPolicy (DWORD) = 1
in
HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Copy this into notepad:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
"SyncForegroundPolicy"=dword:00000001


then save as "sync.reg" (with quotes)
right-click and select merge
(make sure that the reg file does not have a .txt extension
then reboot.
