Default Windows 7 + Domains. Logging in locally vs domains. PC Name required?

I have a Windows 7 computer here that is on our domain. All of our systems are identified by the computer name. This tells us the school and room they are in.

Question is - when I'm at the login screen and I want to log in as a local administrator, I have to type the full computer name \ administrator to log in locally. Well, I know this may sound real whiney, but that's kind of a PITA when you have 30 computers in a class and you're not positive where number 1 starts and where number 30 is. It'd just be easier if I could select local login, administrator + password = BAM. I'm logged in. Not this Full-Computer-Name-27\Administrator thing.

Is there any way to get a more classic looking login screen for these Win 7 machines?

i dont think there is a easyway to do that, you could make it remember the user, but you would still have to type it in atleast once.

Is there any way I can get it broken up so there's 3 lines (do I dare say...) like it was in XP Pro?

Name
Password
Domain

Easy. Simple. Effective. I'd like that back.
