FC5 probably uses GDM for graphical login, so just look at the menus and launch the "login manager" (or so) settings program (or "GDM settings" or "graphical login"..), there simply choose a user that gets automatically logged in.

EDIT: I hope your security settings are ok or that you are absolutely the only person who can reach the computer; otherwise autologin is a bad bad bad idea.
