Can you use sysprep to autologon using a domain account? if so how

Hi Im useing sysprep to deploy windows xp, ive got it joining the domain ect but i want to login to windows using a domain account to run some scripts to run various updates ect. Is there a way to login using a domain account rather than using the local admin account?

Not 100% sure if this will work or not but you could give it a try

Create a Registry Key
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
"AutoAdminLogon"="1"
"DefaultDomainName"="YourDomainName"
"DefaultUserName"="YourUserName"
"DefaultPassword"="YourPassword"

Now apply this registry file during Sysprep, in theory it should automatically logon using the Account Information Specified.

Now if you only want it to logon only once or twice than also specify the following key
"AutoLogonCount"="X" ; Where X = the number of times you wish to logon automatically, it will decrement after each successful logon.

Hope that helps.

Cheers
