Automatic Login and Ubuntu

My fellow Ubuntuers.
I am in much distress. I have done a server installation of Ubuntu and I
have set up ICEWM with a login manager (I have WDM, GDM and XDM on my
system. KDM unconfigured).
I want to set up my box so that it automatically Logs in to the system
on Startup and launches ICEWM. I realize that this leaves some security
issues open, but the machine needs to be as easy to use as possible. I
know that you can just add a launching script to /etc/init.d but I have
not been able to get it to Login.
Also I cannot get ICEWM to call sudo and shutdown the machine. I have
modified my sudoers file and it still doesn't work. I can get a text
script with the line "sudo halt" to switch the machine off.
Any help at all of any sort is appreciated.
