Group Policy for Locking Computers

When a user hits CTRL + ALT + DELETE and LOCKS his computer, he is required to input his UserName and Password in order to unlock the computer. Is there a setting in GPO to remember the username field, and only require the user to type the password?

Environment WinXP SP3 and Windows Server 2003.

Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options
Setting = Do not display last user name in logon screen
Thanks

=/ hmm.  i don't seem to have that problem on our workstations.
When locked, it should display the username and when you click to unlock, by default it already has the username filled out.
FWIW I don't believe there is a setting in GPO that enables/disable the hiding of username.
Is the windows logon "classic" or the "home-style" version?

It looks like classic, I have the option to input Username, Password, Domain. Also we are running Windows XP Professional SP3.

I found it -- GPO: Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies > Security Options:

Interactive logon: Display user information when the session is locked - "User display name, domain and user names".
