Is this the best way do auto login on the Ubuntu 7.10?

1. First I did this:

2. After that I did this (in chroot):

root at ubuntu:/# wget
           => `ldm_5.0.39ubuntu1~fg4_i386.deb'
Connecting to||:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 200 OK
Length: 1 994 088 (1.9M) [application/x-debian-package]

100%[==>] 1 994 088  106.05K/s    ETA 00:009

19:36:41 (106.88 KB/s) - `ldm_5.0.39ubuntu1~fg4_i386.deb' saved 

root at ubuntu:/# dpkg -i ldm*
(Reading database ... 16366 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace ldm 5.0.39 (using ldm_5.0.39ubuntu1~fg4_i386.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement ldm ...
Setting up ldm (5.0.39ubuntu1~fg4) ...

root at ubuntu:/#

3. And finally I added few lines for client.

asmok at ubuntu:~$ cat /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/lts.conf
asmok at ubuntu:~$

4. And then updated image (sudo ltsp-update-image).

5. Now that client can do auto login all by itself.
