I want to disable the Log On To drop down menu on xp sp2 client machines. So when the machine boots, the only selection will be my Domain.

You can restrict the ability to log on to the local machine (forcing domain logon) by using the Allow logon locally and/or deny logon locally policies located in:
Computer configuration | Windows settings | Security settings | Local policies | User Rights |
Create a an OU and GPO for the computers to which you wish to apply.

As long as there are trusted domains, this option will be there.

I know of no way to disable this.

Theoretically, with the above policy the option will still exist but they will not have the option to log on to the local computer. As a result, the domain will also always be displayed as the default, since it shows the last logon option.

Not possible, I'm afraid.

Is there a reason - just curious.

the reason is that the people who use these stations have no mouse, no keyboard. it's touch screen. The keyboard is on the screen. I had few people accidently selecting the local machine. So figured maybe there is a way.

I see, that makes sense.

If they are domain-joined, then the default domain should remain there.  Unless they log onto other domains, then I could see the issue.

How about a larger resolution?
