I don't use Fedora, but since its default desktop environment is Gnome, maybe this will work:

Here's for KDE:

And for SUSE (other people might come here too ^^):

There also seems to be a way to do this by editing gdm.conf:
http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-12777.html
I also read something about deleting the password with the "passwd" command, but this might not be as safe...

Anyway, the feature you are searching for is called "auto-login".
(not "single-user mode" like I thought at first... ^^' That's a boot mode in case of problems.)

Code:
passwd -d <username>
That will delete the password and make it null. So if you aren't looking for an auto-login situation, then doing this will allow you to just hit enter or just log in after choosing the user name. You don't need to do both unless you want to have it auto-login and then not have to know the password for using things like sudo or another terminal or whatever ...and yes... neither is very safe.
