I have setup a Windows 2003 server to accept remote desktop connections over the internet. However, I don't want the domain and the last user login name to be viewable. How to I configure these options?

You can force logon with UPN (user@fqdn.domain.local): in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon, create a DWORD "NoDomainUI", set it to 1, reboot.
To remove the last user name, use a local or group policy: Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options, enable "Don't display last user name in logon dialog" (or similar, not using an English version).
