i use kdm ( i hope you do too, only for the sake of this example )

first make a user for each terminal : pc1 , pc2 ....

then add these lines to the /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc file...
[X-:*-Core]
NoPassEnable=true
NoPassUsers=pc1,pc2,pc3...

and add an individuale section for each terminal
[X-ws001:0-Core]
AutoLoginEnable=true
AutoLoginUser=pc1

[X-ws002:0-Core]
AutoLoginEnable=true
AutoLoginUser=pc2

[X-ws003:0-Core]
AutoLoginEnable=true
AutoLoginUser=pc3
.
.
.

now, restart the terminal and see how it boot, loads X and autologin :-)
