I have a windows 2000 box that I'm trying to have auto login on a windows 2003 domain. The domain is already up and running and the 2000 box is already on the domain. Any ideas?

    Or if you don't want to mess with the registry, TweakUI will do it for you:

    Just a suggestion...but putting a plaintext domain password in the registry is probably a really bad idea.

    Or you can try this.

    My Computer | Control Panel
    Users and Password

    When the Dialog Apears.
    Click on the [Advanced] Tab.
    At the bottom uncheck
    [x] Require users to press Ctrl-Alt-Delete before loggin on.

    See if that will do it for you.
    Have not tested it myself, But I know that it will work on a "Workgroup"
    Just not to sure about it on a Domain.

    Good Luck

    We use Twuakui on 1100+ computers at my job.  It's great and allows for other tweaks as well.  Try this link that has the XP/2003 Svr version as well.
