Autologin under Lindows, not root


How can I set Lindows up so that it automatically logs into my nonpriveleged user account? Knowing what I learned so far about root access, I don't want to run root all the time under Lindows. Also, since it's on a laptop and I'm the only one really using it, I would like to have it automatically log in when I power it up.

If you open the Control Panel and then click on "sytem" - then "login manager" - convenience. I believe you should be able to designate it so that it will go right into the chosen user. Hope this helps.
