Win XP user name

  DTM 20:44 13 Feb 2005

This is probably not going to make much sense but will try.

I am trying to log on to a file server (cobalt Qube 2) and it should be able to use my XP logon name and password. Problem is that my Win XP login keeps adding the name of the computer to the login name e.g.

User = Fred
Computer = Laptop
Login name = Laptop\Fred

Anyone know how I can stop XP appending the computers name to the login? I do not want to change Qube user name to match as may not always logon from the laptop.
