Auto Logon clients

Red Hat 8.0

Big Picture:
Looking to setup where diskless nodes, that when powered up, boot up from linux box only to host the Xsession to the Linux Server and run only mozilla-all processing done on server.

Close in:
I do not want a the user to be concerned with user names and passwords. I want them to run Mozilla and only Mozilla. If they quit Mozilla or reboot client, everything starts all over again.

I want different clients to bring up different web sites by default.

I did this about 4 years ago in HP-UX 9.05 but for the life of me I cannot remember how.

Anyone ever done this in Linux...Anyone...

Thank you in advance...

Have a look at this magazine article...
Linux Journal Issue 103 Nov 2002 , ToolBox Page 24 "Serving up the all-Linux Office"

It's not on their website, yet, but describes your request in beautiful detail ...
