automatically authorising a new user i have added to a role

Hi,

I'm just getting into roles and membership.

I have the code below which is on my registration page.

The users username is their email address.

Once the user has entered their information click register I want to save their details as I have done, add them to the relevant role and then re-direct them to the main menu of the private area.

The only bit I am missing below is how to "automatically" authorise them?
//we use the email as the username and give it customer membership
                Roles.AddUserToRole(c.Email, "Registered Customer");

                //need a step here to authorise the user automatically so they have access to the private area.
                //????

                //now we need to "log" the user in and re-direct to the customer main menu
                Response.Redirect("ClientArea/CustomerMainMenu.aspx");

I can't see anything in there that is doing what I'm after...

Basically after saving my new user to the database I want to authorise them.

They have been added to the role so I just need to say "right this user is now logged in"...?
