Adding

[daemon]
AutomaticLoginEnable=true
AutomaticLogin=vdruser

into /etc/gdm/custom.conf will make GDM log in automatically (seen at 
http://readlist.com/lists/redhat.com/fedora-list/48/243490.html).

Fedora 9 is using GDM 2.22 which apparently is a redesing/rewrite compared to 
the previous versions, I found some screenshots - which might already be a bit 
outdated - at <http://live.gnome.org/GDM/Screenshots>.
