This should be simple but I can't find how to do this anywhere. All I need
is a Windows 2000 server to auto login the admin at boot up. I know I've
done it in the past but I may of used powertoys to do it. I can't find
TweakUI for 2000 anywhere now. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Its easy, but not very secure

Registry Key:
-------------

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

KeyName: Type: Value:
--------- ----- -----

AutoAdminLogon String 1
DefaultUserName String [Username Here]
DefaultPassword String [Password Here]
DefaultDomainName String [Domain Name Here] <----
Unneeded if not logging on to a domain
ForceAutoLogon String 1 <------- Windows
2000 Only

I hope this helps
