Hi all. Please bear with me as it's a head-scratcher for me (I'm used to XP &
98) but probably basic for you! I have installed Win2kPro (5.0.2195, Build
2195) on a new hard-disk and everything looks fine, except....although I have
defined Users in addition to Administrator and Guest, when I boot it up I get
the Administrator login window rather than the list of Userids to select
from. Can anyone suggest which fundamental error I have made with the
installation (and what to do about it)? All help will be gratefully received!

You don't get a list of users to choose from with Windows 2000. You get the
login screen which, by default, will display the username of the last person
to login to the machine. Just type your username in that field, put in your
password and you're in.
