How with I get Win 2K not to stop at username/password screen on reboot

For years, Win 2K has gone all the way through the reboot process without stopping.  Now it's stopping at the Username/Password screen (or whatever the exact wording is) even though I intentionally don't have a password assigned.  I don't remember how to fix that

My preferred option for this is to use AutoLogon (free from http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/Security/Autologon.mspx) which lets you enable and disable autologon easily.
