Default XP Single User Login

I should know this, but for the life of me I cannot find it in XP...

I want to get rid of the Welcome Screen in XP. I only have 1 user on my PC and I would like it to start up and go straight into windows without having to click my name.

Is there any way to change this with XP? I know I used to be able to do it in win2K.

start, run:
control userpasswords2

select the user you want to login by default and remove the checkbox on top of the window
