Lightbulb How to bypass login: prompt after booting kernel and ramdisk


Hi,

Before getting into the problem, i will introduce my platform details

I have Embedded development board with arm processor on it.
I have ported linux-2.6.19 kernel image and ramdisk onto it.

After the board is booted i.e once kernel and ramdisk boots up.
I get a prompt for login:
Once i enter root and press enter enters into bash shell mode.

I want to bypass login: prompt.
I want to enter bash shell directly after booting without entering root at login prompt.

I know that i have to alter inittab file in /etc/ folder of my ramdisk
But what to alter no idea....

Any information regarding this concept is appreciated

Thanks,
Regards,
Janardhan
