How to disable auto-login (MDK9)


hi,

I'm a newbie and I've got mandrake 9.0. somehow i've managed to enable auto-login and i don't want it!! I've looked around but can't seem to find anything that will disable it. How do i do this?
(I think i'm gonna erase my user account and set up a new one, cos i've buggered it up )

silly question: how do u say gnome? Like 'Genome' in DNA or like Gnome - an annoying garden ornament?

:P

thx

Thanx, m8. Seems to have worked.

Now another problem (sorry!):

I cannot run UserDrake!! Each time I try to open it I get the message "Cannot lock user lib /etc/ptmp /etc/????". Is there a way to fix this?

cheers

Log in as root. Do that again.
