I have 2 Panther questions.

1. Is it possible to have automatic login with more than 1 user?
2. Is it possible to just be able to click your name at the login screen and have it just log you in without prompting for a password?

Thanks

1) Yes.
System Preferences -> Accounts -> Login Options -> check "Automatically login as: [select user]

2) Yes.
Give the user a blank password. That should log them in right away. However, this is an extraordinarily bad idea! You have no security for that user at all. If you insist on doing this, PLEASE do not make it an admin user.

Ok. For the first suggestion, don't you only get 1 choice for the whole machine of who you want to automatically log in?

You should get a list of all users on the machine. You might have to be logged in as an admin to see all the users, as I am currently logged in as an admin.
