Not sure if you can do it the easy way (through Control Panel etc.)

but this KB article tells you what to do

it may just be as simple as unticking the box under the screensaver options that says ask for password after screensaver etc

Or....

Click Start, Run and type CONTROL USERPASSWORDS2, and click Ok. Select the user account from the list (to which account you want to automatically logon). Uncheck Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer option, and click Ok. Type the user account password and complete the process.

For Windows XP Home, don't try to auto-login as the built-in Administrator, as you'll receive a restrictions error.
