Ozo is correct, I wrote autologin:
See: ftp://ftp.physics.purdue.edu/pub/pundits/README
to get the pointer to the console server source.

You need mkcmd and some time to get it up and running.  Then you have another probelm: if you want the X windows login you might have to configure xdm and autologin both.  That will be a problem.
