Novell client 4.91 and login prompt

How do I clear the login prompt so that when a user logs in, then out from a Novell Netware 6.5 server and does not put the user name in the login field.
After logging out, then logging back in, I do not want to see the last users name in the login field. I want it blank.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It can be done with a Group Policy setting, in computer configuration, security settings should be a "don't display last user login" setting.

Alternatively, you can do a registry tweak:

HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows NT/CurrentVersion/Winlogon
Create an entry with type String, named DontDisplayLastUserName and give it a value of 1.

If the entry exists, change the value to 1.
