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.

    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.
