Question Can I set up mwm to auto log on?


Is it possible to have the mwm session on a box auto log in ? I am running SuSe 8.1

I am building a look up terminal ( at the same time I am learning Linux) that has a menu on it that allows the user to XTerm into an application. The security is done at the application, I just want to have the terminal already logged onto the mwm screen with no log on necessary. I would put a user account in as the auto log on but nobody would have access to the account or the pword.

Any thoughts?

Thanks very much for a web page with some great information.
