[mythtv-users] Automatic startup

Hi all,

I have a FC3 box running myth 0.81 on KDE.  I'm now trying to get it to 
start up automatically on bootup but I'm only having partial luck.  I 
used the init scripts from contrib to start up mythbackend during bootup 
and that works fine.  I've tried following the directions on Jarod 
Wilsons site to get FC3 to automatically log in as mythtv and run 
mythfrontend but that's where I'm having trouble.  I ran gdmsetup and 
specified that it should automatically log in as mythtv but that didn't 
work.  Rebooting still leaves me at the login screen. Running gdmsetup a 
second time shows that it did remember my settings.  I've also tried 
going into the KDE control center and setting both the option to log in 
automatically and the option to log in as a specific user after a 
specified period of time has passed but neither of them work either. 
Has anybody gotten this successfully working on FC3 with KDE?
