How can I log in to my PC/network using a Chinese user name?

Hi, I have set my Regional Option's "Input Locales" to have Chinese as the default input.  I also created a user in AD users and computers snap-in with Chinese login name.  I log off as an Administrator and at the login screen, I wasn't able to bring up the Chinese typing for entering a Chinese user name that I just created.  How can I type in Chinese characters for my login name?  Thank you.

Try to create a new user and put this user in the Administrators group.
Then you're sure you've got an default profile.
If you install the multilanguage pack you should be able to select the Chinese language when you logon.

Hope this helps.

Hi, I did create a user and the user is in all different Admin groups.  I did selecet the Chinese multilanguage in the Input Locale of my Regional Setting and I'm able to create folder and files and user name in Chinese.  The problem is when I'm at the login screen (after restarting my computer), I press shift or shift (space) and still no Chinese input.   Thank you.

Weird. Once you install the multilanguage pack, you should be able to select the Chinese language when you logon.

Why it's not showing up on the logon screen is beyond me at this point. It's worked for me for other languages.

Check this out: http://www.ficorp.com/intl_2000.html

I don't have any more insight than this.

When you say "install the multilanguage pack", do you mean doing that in the Regional Setting? It did asked me to insert the Win2000 CD.  Is there a different install the multilanguage pack installation other than that?  Thank you.

Did you following along with the link I gave above?

For what you are doing, pay attention to the following:

"For this installation the only choice for Menus and dialogs is English (more about this later).

We can add input locales, such as the Japanese input method editor (IME).  Just select the Input Locales tab and add the appropriate IME."

"Installing Multilanguage Support"
"Setting up a user for another language"

Hope this helps.
