Setting Windows XP client "Log on to" field to default to domain

Hi

Is there a way to set the Windows XP Pro client "Log on to" field to default to the domain??  I have an SOE image that runs a sysprep.  The sysprep adds the machine into AD and reboots the computer.  When a user logs on, they need to change the "Log on to" option from the local machine name to the domain.  

Is there a way to default this option to the domain (group policy, registry hack)?  I know its simple to do it once but our users aren't that bright (we have 500 of them)

Thanks
Anthony

Its

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
DefaultDomainName

RightClick DefaultDomainName and Click Modify

Put your domain name in the field

Hit OK

Close the registry editor.

And possibly the easiest way to push this out to your clients would be to integrate it with Group Policy...  You could push the reg hack out with a startup script under Computer Config..  Just a thought..!!
