Disable auto login

I just set up a Win 2000 Pro box and mistakenly set the option to "always login as administrator". I certainly don't want this because anyone would have administrative rights on that box. How do I disable that feature so I can set up other users and they will have to log in?

Thanks for the help. I was too close to the forest to see the trees and completely missed the check box that you mentioned. Anyway, thanks for pointing it out to me.

No problem, but why the B grade?

Sorry, I'm new to this forum and felt the question was a simple one but after reading the guidelines, I would gladly give you an A because you did answer the question correctly the first time. At first, I questioned whether the checkbox really did exist because something that simple surely I wouldn't have missed it. I questioned whether if the auto login was disabled then the checkbox was also disabled. Actually, I solved the problem by simply re-running the network identification wizard. Even though when the wizard is run, it doesnt really address the auto logon issue but it does reset it to "have to login". Anyway, I really appreciate the help and it was a good lesson for me to be a little more observant. Thanks again.
