Ubuntu 9.10 - Get rid of user list at login screen

In Ubuntu 9.10, how do I change it so as not to show a list of users at the login screen? I would prefer it to be like 9.04 where you typed in the username, then the password.

"This works (I just did it):

sudo -u gdm gconftool-2 --set --type boolean /apps/gdm/simple-greeter/disable_user_list true"

"System > Administration > Login or something like that and then edit those options to your liking. That's probably not exactly it, but I'm pretty sure that should set you on your way.

[I'm in Windows now - that's why I can't check.]"
