Question Auto Login to Open Windows

I am trying to bypass the login screen when the system boots and auto-login to open windows. I believe I need to modify the S99dtlogin but I don't know what to add/modify. Has anyone ever created an auto-login for Solaris 8?

You would need to remove dtlogin altogether, and instead launch X and a dtession. However this would mean that by default you'd get a "root" owned session, you might want to su to a non-root user before launching the dtsession ( or other WM )
