I have a fully encrypted single user system with autologin like that:
force agetty to use a different login program in my case a script with
"exec /bin/login -f my-username"
my line in /etc/inittab looks like that:
"c1:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty -n -l /usr/local/bin/ 38400 tty1 linux"
at the end of my .profile I call startx.
