Question Autologin with timeout


Hi All,

I am geting a bit confused regarding the autologin of a user , and in need of help desperately. Could anybody please help me with the below queries :

How can we set autologin for any normal user in RHEL5 ?
Also, How can we then logout such a user later, as we can't logout such user normally ? How to set timeout for such autologin users ?

Thanks in advance,
Kapil.

What do you mean by autologin? Why would you need to do this?
