Fedora 10 Autologin

Took a small detour to Fedora land, I found no option how to enable autologin in gnome, so here’s how to do it.
Please remember to back up your files first! :
cp /etc/gdm/gdm.schemas /etc/gdm/gdm.schemas.backup
nano /etc/gdm/gdm.schemas
and locate
false  Change this to true.
And finally edit this:
  Put the username here.
If you have look a bit further down, you’ll find options how to enable timed login too, if you use that instead you must leave auto login disabled.
