I've setup Win2000 SBS. A few Xp Pro machines were connected to it.
Originaly the XP machines were connected to NT4 SBS via a workgroup.
By joining XP machines to the 2000 domain the XP welcome (log on) went away and the std cntrl-alt-del replaced the welcome screen.

However, since the domain is gone and the XP machines are back on the original NT4 SBS and workgroup,
How can I remove all traces of the domain from the XP machines...
1. (more important to me) trim the drop down log on choice of the domain, for instance, leaving only the workgroup, or
2. get the welcome screen back
Thanks.

if i understand your question correctly, you have to disjoin the computers from the domain. to do this, you'll need the local admin password.

right click my computer on the desktop.
select the computer name (or network identification - thats what it is for 2000, i think it's computer name for xp) tab.
click the properties button
put the tick in the button next to workgroup
click ok
enter the local admin name and password
click ok
restart

you should be good to go by then.

2. Click on Change The Way Users Log On or Off.

3. Check the box next to Use the Welcome screen.

4. Click Apply Options.
