At the bottom of the left hand pane is the "Login Options" button. This will open the subpage where you can enable "Automatic login". You will need to select your account from the list. Afterwards, the machine will start up and automatically log in to the account selected.
Now the warning... I would never do what you are attempting to do- on any machine running any operating system. Running without a password is bad enough. Letting the machine log in by itself is worse.

I suggest you set an admin password, use a non-admin account for your daily use (a passwordless non-admin account is MUCH safer than a passwordless admin account), and put up with the admin password prompts to install software or to configure system prefs.eMac (1.25GHz USB 2.0), 768MB, Mac OS X (10.5.2)
