Default logon domain

Is there a group policy template available so that the default login domain of a workstation can be set. This is to avoid users having to select their logon domain from the drop down list of domains.

Please help !!!!!!!!!!!

Here's an adm template; note that this is not a "real" group policy, as it writes outside of the ...\policies\... keys. In this case, the major impact is that you'll have to go to the View menu (when the Administrative Templates section is highlighted), and disable the filter for "Show group policies only" (or similar); the new policy will then be shown with a red symbol instead of a blue one.
