Description of problem:  Firstboot should ask for autologin

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  N/A
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
Some people use Linux at home and there is little purpose for them in
going through a login screen after boot (it could made sense to have
to go through a login screen after disconnecting, since they could
want to assume a differnt identity, eg root).  This can be configured  
through the 'login screen' entry of the 'system tools' menu, but user
has to know about it in the first place.

That is why I think that when first boot asks for an additional
non-root user it should also ask if user wants autologin for him

Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
