How to autologin / auto startx / auto booting
make you not have to type startx every time you boot, it goes right to desktop.
Using this on backtrack 4 Pre Final persistent changes.
ctrl+o #WriteOut (o=letter, NOT a zero)
all done!! reboot and try it out.
you can put all kind of things you want to autostart in this file, like me, I have put "start-network" and "wicd-client" so that I have working network every time I boot.

Good friend of the forums
cool thanks, i was trying to figure how to do this..
But i want mine to auto start with root already being the user name..and it just asks for the password.
and after password is entered it auto starts startx.
Little correction for you,
in nano use Ctrl not shift. to save ctrl+o
tnx. edited first post

Why should you install all kinds of new unneccary software???
First you need to setup a root password, you can do this by entering the root enviroment. You can do this by typing 'sudo su' in a prompt. After you have succesful enterred the root enviroment you can change your password with the following command: 'passwd'
Now we need to edit /etc/rc.local with a texteditor, like VI or nano.
Add the following line before the 'exit 0' line.
su root -c startx
Save & reboot, and voila no more login prompt.
