Hi!

Do you mean just one user with no password?

Yes, I think that is what he means. He needs a home user environment. Just beware, you'll need to create a root account and then create a normal user. I believe there is an option to not create a password so that might be your solution.

Go to the Preferences, Log -in screen or something like that. Change it to auto login for your user. Having the auto for root is a bad idea.

Wow... not root buddy, normal user. Set the auto-login for the user NOT ROOT.

For root, you will have to go into sh and login there.
