The Novell Research team did a great job digging up the answers to this multiple-choice question from one of their readers. Here's the question:

I have a system running Windows XP with the beta XP Novell client. I would like to be able to have the system auto-login to a specific username/password when it boots. I thought this was possible under earlier versions of Windows/Client, but I can't seem to find anything obvious. Am I wasting my time looking?
