If you have a version of KDE4 that does not allow you to enter into an administrative mode and configure autologin here is a command line version for this settings:

[X-:0-Core]
AutoLoginAgain=true
AutoLoginDelay=0
AutoLoginEnable=true
AutoLoginLocked=false
AutoLoginUser=lilo
ClientLogFile=.xsession-errors

Add the above lines to the and of your:

/etc/kde4/kdm/kdmrc

file. The above example will auto login a user named "lilo" into a KDE4 system using KDM and a login manager. The AutoLoginDelay option specifies how many seconds a kdm will wait until it will execute a user auto login procedure.
