New to this XP stuff, I'm using the pro edition and I'm wanting there to be a logon like it was in 2000, where you had to hit ctrl-alt-del to login. This just has my name on the screen and i click on it and it lets me in with not even asking for a password. How do I change this?

HOW TO: Change the Logon Window and the Shutdown Preferences in Windows XP
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;291559

BEGIN ARTICLE

The information in this article applies to:
Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

IN THIS TASK
SUMMARY
Use the Classic Logon Screen
Require Users to Press CTRL+ALT+DEL Before the Classic Logon Screen Is Displayed
IMPORTANT: This article contains information about modifying the registry. Before you modify the registry, make sure to back it up and make sure that you understand how to restore the registry if a problem occurs. For information about how to back up, restore, and edit the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
Q256986 Description of the Microsoft Windows Registry
Summary
Setup configures Windows XP to use the friendly Welcome logon screen and the shutdown buttons, if your computer is installed as a home computer (a computer where a network domain has not been specified).

This article describes how you can enable the classic logon screen used by Windows XP Server that resembles the following example:
Log On to Windows
    User name: _____________
    Password:  _____________
WARNING: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

Use the Classic Logon Screen
To temporarily use the classic logon screen, press CTRL+ALT+DEL twice on the Welcome logon screen.

To configure Windows XP to use the classic logon and shutdown screens for every logon session, do the following:

Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
Double-click User Accounts.
Click Change the way users log on or off.
Click to clear the Use the Welcome screen check box.
NOTE: If you disable the Welcome logon screen, you also disable the Fast User Switching option.

Require Users to Press CTRL+ALT+DEL Before the Classic Logon Screen Is Displayed
If you want to set up a requirement for a user to press CTRL+ALT+DEL before the classic logon is displayed, in the same manner as it behaves on Windows XP Server:

Click Start, click Run, type: regedit, and then click OK.
Select the Winlogon subkey at the following registry location:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
Click Edit, click New, and then click DWORD value.
Change the value name to "DisableCAD" (without the quotes) and press ENTER.
Keep the data value set to 0 which is displayed as 0x00000000
