RH9: Autologin

How do I set up an autologin as UserX (we can say screenname is userx) under RedHat 9? I am used to Mandrake doing it for me, and since I am the only one who uses my system, I would like it to automatically login to my user.

start menu (or whatever you want to call it) --> system settings --> login screen

In the login screen half way down should be a auto login option

Thanks. I guess you're talking about within Gnome, aren't you? I guess we can call it the Gnome Foot (though it actually has the RedHat Fedora.) KDE would be the K-button everywhere I saw it written, and the same for the Gnome Foot.

The Start menu, is of course Terrorism. (Windows)
