How can I display last known user during Win2k bootup?

Every time I start Win2k, the logon reverts back to the original user that was set up. How can I get logon to display the last user on boot up?
There's a value in the Registry that handles this. Fire up REGEDT32 and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWinlogon. Add or edit a REG_SZ named DontDisplayLastUserName and set the value to 0.
