Send Windows 2k/xp UserID to MySql table using PHP/CGI

Server:
Apache with PHP/MYSQL on Novell 6.5 Server.

Question:
I am creating a page that will require an identification for tracking and auditing purposes.
In Php page (hidden tex box), I want to retrieve get value %USERNAME%. I have not succeeded with
Javascript or any other method yet. This username is the LOGGED In user of a windows workstation.
You can type set at the command prompt to see the information I need.

Possible using PHP or CGI ? I am not trained well enough in either of these.

> %USERNAME%
you do not mean %USERNAME% from the client, do you?
impossible (or you need to install malware on the client)

Answer: The user name from the Windows Login.

I ended up using this script in an .hta page and it works well. The normal box that warns you does not appear
because of using the .hta.

</script>
<script language="JavaScript">
function username() {
var Network = new ActiveXObject("WScript.Network")
var username = (Network.UserName)
var computername = (Network.ComputerName)
document.{HTMLFormName}.{BranchEmp_Name}.value=(username);
document.{HTMLFormName}.{Branch_PCName_Name}.value=(computername); }
</script>
