I would like to eliminate the password on the BOOT sequence. I think it probably is done in the Terminal, but my thinking has failed me in the past, often actually.

Are you prompted for a password before the POST screen, or after the GRUB boot menu?

If the password is asked for at the GRUB boot menu, I think you just need to comment out (or remove) the "password" line in the /boot/grub/menu.lst file.

That is the log in screen, GDM.

It is not advised to auto log in, but if you must google is your friend :
