Autologin Problems


I am trying to set up autologin on Mandriva Linux 2010.1. I recently got a new computer, and I'm configuring it on this new computer. On the old computer, which was 32 bit, it worked just fine as was, but on this new computer which is 64 bit, it is not working just fine. It is logging in okay, but it's bringing up a folder, origionally /media/IOMEGA, which doesn't actually exist, but now the home folder of the user. I don't want that to show up at login. I also want it to show up all the way as it does when I log out and log back on. It's showing up when autologging as a black screen (no wallpaper), and the home directory icon doesn't show up, and the right click menu is the LXDE menu and not the menu that usually shows up. Also, I'm having trouble getting VNC to start properly, but I think it's probably due to these errors.

I figured out how to get the VNC server to start. I hadn't put the .desktop file in the autostart directory. When I did that, that part worked. Now it's just the rest of it I need to figure out what's going wrong.

Now it loads okay, again for whatever reason, but it still pops up the home directory and it won't open programs.

I believe it started popping up the folder after installing the parellel zip disk drive, and it goes to the home folder because I had it going to a different folder for the zip disk than the default, and it can't go into that nonexistant folder.
