On the older login screen, when it asks you for User Name and Password,
sometimes you press the "Options" button and a third field will appear, called Log On To.

What exactly is that Log On To field for?

Also, will it ever appear on Windows XP Home with only one computer?

Here's an example I found:

If a computer is a member of a Windows Domain, you will have the option of logging onto the domain or to the local machine. "Home" editions of Windows cannot join domains.

Thanks - does Windows XP Home even have the older login screen?
I've read that it does, but the screenshots I've found all say XP Pro:

How to change the logon window and the shutdown preferences in Windows XP
Quote:
Use the classic logon screen
To temporarily use the classic logon screen, press CTRL+ALT+DEL two times on the Welcome logon screen.

To configure Windows XP to use the classic logon and shutdown screens for every logon session, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
Double-click User Accounts.
Click Change the way users log on or off.
Clear the Use the Welcome screen check box.
Note If you turn off the Welcome logon screen, you also turn off the Fast User Switching option.
