For Xp, this is the quickest way, no "Regedit" involved;

1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2. Double-click User Accounts.
3. Click Change the way users log on or off.
4. Clear the Use the Welcome screen check box.
5. Click apply and/or OK and close.

Copied from the site I sent the OP to....
You can also use turn on automatic logon without editing the registry in Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition and in Microsoft Windows XP Professional on a computer that is not joined to a domain. To do this, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type control userpasswords2, and then click OK.
