[Clearer Repost] No "Welcome" upon booting XP

    - I have a (Mac) host with two users; both have admin privileges.
    - I want them to share a VM with WinXP Pro sp3; the XP guest should have (in addition to Administrator), two user accounts.
    - All accounts are password-protected. XP Guest account is not enabled.

    Upon starting the VM, I don't see the "Welcome" screen, but rather am logged directly into the Administrator account.

    Parallels tech support suggested I use a slip-streamed XP sp3 disk, then do a recovery on my problematic VM. Rather than follow the latter advice with the chance of messing up my current VM, I installed a new VM with the ss'd disk: same problem - WinXP goes directly to Administrator. Again, all accounts are password-protected.

    Does anyone else experience this, or have an idea of how I can fix it?!?
    I would really appreciate any help to resolve the problem.
