I just installed the LXDE spin on my netbook and like it...though there aren't many applications to chose from. I installed firefox with yum because midori didn't like certain sites (like fedoraforum.org).

My question, though, is how do I set up an auto login with LXDE>

SLIM is now (F12) the default Log-in Manager for LXDE re-spin, but I think that it may not support auto-logins: http://slim.berlios.de/manual.php

thanks for that...I was thinking it was XDM. Auto-logins are possible with slim by adding this to /etc/slim.conf:

default_user username
auto_login yes
