I guess I was not clear. I am setting up this PC for my mom. I want her to
be able to power on and have the PC go directly into the GNOME desktop. No
user (or root) login screen at all.  I have already figured out how to get
rid of the splash and help screens that come up by default. This is just to
play games with.  Thanks again
