Aye, I've done autlogin under KDE and GNOME before, but I don't have either 
installed on this system and so have been looking for a way to do it with 
xdm (no joy) or another lightweight login manager that supports autologin 
(again, no joy). Enlightenment's login manager is about to get autologin 
support, but again it'd mean me installing yet more unnecessary libraries 
and stuff.

Did you notice a difference over previous setups...?

The prelink guide for gentoo has got fairly explicit instructions on what 
and what not to prelink... I was thinking of only doing it on my Myth stuff.
