What's the best way to implement the 'Remember Me' functionality in PHP?

Quincy2oneOh asked

I've been asked to do a 'Remember Me' similar to Yahoo! where they keep you logged in for 2 weeks.  What would be the best way to implement this?

My boss doesn't want our clients to have to log in 'all the time' he wants them to point their browser to our application and have them go directly to their own private account.
