Hi Adam,

Can you give more details ?
Do you mean that you want to have the system auto-login a la win98 ?

Or do you mean that from a power-off state, the system boots directly to the login prompt
of linux, without any user keystroke ?
In this case, it depends of your bootloader I think. With yaboot, you just have to
put the right options in the configuration file.

Maybe you mean that you want to specify a time for the machine to boot ? I've seen some
threads about that on this list some times ago. It seemed to have a link with some
openfirmware commands for the PMU. 
I would really like to know if there have been progress on this point.
