I've moved from Fedora8 to Fedora10beta using GNOME 2 weeks ago, beside the
autologin that have to be configured in gdm config file instead of a menu
you probably used there is no much differences in the process. Search for
"gdm autologin" in google, I don't have access to my Linux machine right
xine can be started from .bashrc

If you don't have a strong machine you should probably consider another
windows manager since GNOME and KDE are resource hungry.
