    2. automatic login to user without password
    If you are a KDE user,

    Menu Settings ->System Settings -> System Administration->Login Screen--> Convenience tab

    For the graphic card, I'm not expert in this area, and I let other members help you.

    You cannot use the ATI Propriatary drivers in any current version of Linux with that card. You have to use the open source ATI driver.

    Sometimes using the nomodeset kernel boot option improves performance. It worked for me in F13, but not F14.
