How do I hide a File Sharing Only user from the login window when Mac OS X starts up?
There are two methods.
1) Change the users UID to be less than 500. I would recommend starting at 400. This is my preferred method.
2) Delete the users Full Name.
With Mac OS X 10.4.x you will need to perform another step. You will need to issue this command in the terminal (make sure it is all on one line):
sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow Hide500Users -boolean true
This was found on Mac OSXHints.com.
MacOSXHints also provides another method for disabling selecting users from appearing in the login window (This only works for 10.4.x).
