The mingetty modification worked. Thank you to everyone on the list.
You all are a great help.
Just for reference here is how I modified my /etc/init/tty.conf to
bypass the login on a console-only machine:
sed -i s/"exec \/sbin\/mingetty $TTY"/"exec \/sbin\/mingetty
--autologin root $TTY"/ /etc/init/tty.conf
which gives you:
stop on runlevel 
exec /sbin/mingetty --autologin root $TTY
What can I do if I want to have only TTY1 automatically logging in as
root, and have the other TTY's ready for logging in as other users after
the livecd has started up?
