How do I allow a user to access Windows 2000 without logging on?

nLogged on as an administrator, where would I find where the user must enter a username and password checkbox? I want to allow a Windows 2000 user to access Windows without logging on.

You're used to Windows 98. Windows 2000 doesn't have the same feature in the same way. Instead, use Microsoft Tweak UI to configure the AutoLogon values in the registry, which automatically log on to Windows 2000 using the credentials you provide. If this computer is connected to a business network, I strongly recommend that you reconsider using AutoLogon, as doing so weakens your network's security.
