Hi Edward. I'm not sure what your looking for here. If it's just to autologin 
a user, there are are a few lines you can add to /etc/gdm/custom.conf. See 

# Lines below added by djmons

# Automatic login, if true the first local screen will automatically logged
# in as user as set with AutomaticLogin key

The lines above will enable you to autologin one user. Just change djmons to 
your user name. See below if you have more than one user setup, and want the 
option to login as a different user. The autologin of the designated user 
will be delayed, thus giving you the chance to stop the autologin, and select 
a different user to login as.

# Timed login. usefull for kiosks. Log in a certain user after a certain 
# amount of time

Ok. Assuming you have mutliple users available, but only have one set for 
autologin. Obviously it would be good to see the GDM greeter, and have the 
chance to stop the autologin, and choose another user.

First change  "theAutomaticLoginEnable=true" line to false.

Then change the "TimedLoginEnable=false" line to true

Obviously change tthe user name on "TimedLogin=djmons" to your user name.

The login delay is up to you.

I've just tried all this on F9, and it works as above.

If you want my /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf file from my FC2 install please ask, and 
I'll send it offlist directly to you.

All the best.
