Thanks for the quick and accurate response. I've printed out "How to Enable Automatic Login on Linux" and will follow the appropriate steps the next time I boot up that machine. I'll also keep the info on file in case I install another distro. Thanks again.

The Display Manager (DM) will handle this. SInce you mentioned Ubuntu, it
is Gnome (GDM).
Google: gdm autologin. A reasonable result:
Ubuntu may have a GUI or preferred place to handle these sorts of things
(Suse has a security module for Yast that sets this up in the DM) AFAIK KDM
and GDM use different methods (KDM's is in the control panel, I haven't used
GDM for a while so I don't know if it is in the gnome control center or not)
