Are you using GDM or KDM?
In KDE, with KDM, open the control panel and go down to 'system administration', under that select 'login manager' and click 'administrator mode' (unless you are root already). From there you can enable auto-login and password-less login for certain users.
For GDM, you can edit /etc/gdm/gdm.conf and you probably can find an option to allow that somewhere.
I would strongly reccommend that you do not do that, as logging in as root automatically, and without a password esentially bypasses all the security on your system (except perhaps a firewall), so anyone who has physical access ro can hack into it from the web can see, execute, and modify everything on your computer. If you want the convenience of auto-login, do so as a normal user, and actually you should use only a normal user for almost all tasks.
