Interactive Logon Message Text

Hello,
I have a Windows 2000 Active Directory Domain with a setting in group policy to display an Interactive Logon Message.  This works fine.  I'm in the process of setting up Auto Login for one Windows XP workstation.  I've made the necessary changes to the registry and Auto Login is working fine, however, the Interactive Logon Text Message dispays and is waiting for "interaction" to continue.  Is there a way to automate acceptance of this message or to add a 20 second "timer" delay to this message?
Thanks,
Kim

Why not put this machine in its OU and block the Logon GPO on the OU.

... or use security filtering to prevent it being applied to this machine http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/Group-Policy-Security-Filtering.html

The Interactive Logon Text message is implemented in the Default Domain GPO.  How would I block the GPO on a new OU?  I think this may be the easiest solution for this workstation.
Thanks,
Kim

create a new OU, put the computer account into the new OU, select the OU in the GPMC (if you do not have GPMC get it here http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=0a6d4c24-8cbd-4b35-9272-dd3cbfc81887&displaylang=en) and select BLOCK INHERITANCE

The only additional step I had to do was go into the Registry and search for the Key that stored the Logon Message, I deleted both of the items related to the Logon Banner and then all worked great.
Thanks for the quick response.
