when i leave my NT box unattended or go home from work, i hit
cntrl-alt-del at the console, then clikc on lock workstation.

then if i want to access it from home, i open up the viewer in my win95,
type in the session password, click on the icon menu at the left of the
title bar, click on "send cntl-alt-del" then type in my password when the
prompt comes up.
