I have done what is written in "9.3.2. Automated Linux/Unix guest logons"

I have configured "/etc/pam.d/gdm" on my RHEL 5 guest, and copied
"pam_vbox.so" to /lib/security/

The file "/etc/pam.d/common-auth" doesn't exist on Red Hat systems. Is
it necessary ?
Still I can't get auto-logons to work.
Any ideas?
