Problem loging in to specific user on a network computer

I am using Windows XP Pro SP3 on my "Upstairs" Computer, and Windows 2000 Pro on my "Downstairs" computer. The Downstairs computer has two users "Guest" and "Geoff".

When I tried to access my downstairs computer from my upstairs computer it would only show "Guest" and that was grayed out. This account did not have a password so I could not enter one. It just cycled back to needing a password. So, I added a password to the Guest account and then was able to login. There was no way to select Geoff account instead of Guest. Unfortunately, I ticked the box for it to remember the password.

Now, when I go to access the downstairs computer it takes me straight into the Guest account, and there is no way to even start to try to select the Geoff account.

So, my two questions are:

1 How do I stop my upstairs computer from remembering the Guest account.

2 How do I set things up so I can choose which account I want to login to.

Any help will be much appreciated.
