Simplifying guest-login - usability

Is there a way to add a "guest-login"-button or something to the regular X-login screen, without having any other accounts showing? And is there a way to make that guest login password-free? (Or pseudo-free, as in, at least whomever's using the computer won't have to worry about it...)

Distro: Ubuntu Hoary, Gnome

In KDE in the KDE control centre you can enable auto-login for users. So if you created your guest account you could have the computer automatically login as guest when the GUI starts. Its in KDE Control Centre->System Administration->Login Manager->Convenience
