Standard Windows XP does not have this feature intrinsically but does make
it fairly easy to do by facilitating swapping (or complementing) the
standard msgina.dll for (with) another custom one.
A number of third-party vendors produce custom GINAs for smart-card
authentication, password prompting, etc. There are also some malware
replacement ginas that subsequently steal the ordinary logon password, etc.
One of the more interesting Ginas is TCGINA which allows Truecrypt to be
used for encrypting much of a user's profile including registry settings,
etc. See: http://www.truecrypt.org/third-party-projects/tcgina /
Google on Gina for lots more.
