I need to create the pulldown (log on to: Midway ) in the picture. I have just reformated and installed a clean copy of XP Pro on a P4 tower. The computer is being placed into a network that the Group is called Midway. I have Admin rights on both the server end and the computer. If you can point me to a Microsoft article that explains how to create the actual network pulldown on the Ctrl Alt Delete login screen for user for XP Pro I will be able to do it. I just don't know where to begin to look to create the network group pulldown.

If you have joined the domain, then the login screen above is pretty much automatic. Have you joined the domain?  ... Thinkpads_User

Above is correct, you need to join the domain.

Right click my computer and go to properties
select computer name tab from the top
choose network id
from here on just answer the questions like computer name etc.
enter the name of your domain and your administrator credentials
after this is all finished and you reboot you will have your login prompt and be on the domain.

Joining a domain is not really a wizard. Follow the directions above to change network ID to a domain. There is just one screen after that for authentication. ... Thinkpads_User
