looking at your excellent guide, you might want to add a bit for people 
who are prefer using KDE and the KDM Login Manager to configure their 
auto login.  Your guide is specifically for GDM login manager starting a 
KDE session, which may explain the confusion I had with respect to the 
autologin feature.  By default as I remember, It is not clear on FC that 
KDE Desktop users have to use gdmsetup to change their login properties. 
   Which means if a user sets up their default desktop to KDE via GDM it 
won't use the auto login info supplied by KDM Login Manager tool, which 
they would naturally use to configure autologin via the KDE desktop.  Do 
you get my drift ?

Just my 0.02c
