    Is there a way to change the automatic logon in Win2k from Adminstrator to my name? (My name is already listed as a user with Admin. priveleges.)
    Thanks

    You can set Auto login in the registry.... let me remember the key...

    Under HKLM/Software/Microsoft/WindowsNT/CurrentVersion/Winlogon there are a few values to change...

    (these are all string values)

    AutoAdminLogon = 1
    DefaultUsername = [yourusername]
    DefaultPassword = [yourpassword]

    And there ya go, should auto login.
