Set the 'init' to '5'.
For that you need to edit 'inittab' file located in '/etc'
Open the file 'inittab' in any text editor and find the line 'id:5:initdefault:'. The number after 'id:' must be '5' to boot automatically to GUI.

CLick on 'System Menu -> Login Screen
you would get a dialog box. Click on 'Security' tab where you can enable automatic logic for specific user.
