Automatic Log-in?

This is probably a really simple question, but I couldn't find it answered elsewhere on these forums... Is there any way to make XP automatically log in a user on boot-up? I only have (and use) my one account and would like to skip the choosing of the only available option each time during boot.
Thanks a bunch,
Mike

do it yourself like so
1. Click Start on the Windows taskbar, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type "control userpasswords2" (without quotes), and then click OK.
3. In the dialog box that appears,
You'll see: "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer" check box.
Enabled will require users to logon, disabling will make XP automatically logon to the Administrator account.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
