login password, take off?

hiya, Im the only person who uses my mac in the house and would like to make it a bit more accessible. Is there anyway to take off the login when you switch on a mac, so it loads straight into my user with me having to put in my password??

thanks, hope ive explained my problem correctly.

System preferences -> Accounts -> Login Options -> Check the "Automatically log in as: <your account>" button.

Edit: 2 minutes...? I was beaten by two whole minutes...? I'm devastated...!
