Disabling "Create an Account" (Trial Version)

We are trialing FogBUGZ and like what we see so far, so we provided the trial URL to one of our more technically adept customers to allow him to add some "real world" cases. I intended that he would enter cases from the publicly-accessible form (opened from the "Enter a New Case" link on the trial home page). I was surprised to see that, instead, he was able to create an account (albeit not at Administrator level) by clicking "create an account", and entered his cases that way.

If we decide to purchase FB, we would want most customers to /not/ have accounts and, instead, enter their cases through the public page. How would this be achieved in the retail version? Keep the logon page on our Intranet, and only expose the case entry form to the Internet? (Sorry if those are stupid questions, but we're a low level communications shop, and do not have much knowledge of web servers/HTML/ASP/etc.)

You can turn that feature off in the purchased version.  It's a setting on the Site page (which isn't available in the trial).
