Does anyone know why the ctl-alt-del combination is still used to log in to an NT/XP based system? Seems to have been a security issue with past windows systems, but is it still necessary? Is it safe to bypass that at login?

Not sure why you think its a security issue. I am not really sure what you are asking. In windows 2000, NT, and XP Pro in domain controller login mode it asks you to press control alt delete to bring up the user login prompt. This is normal.
