Yep that looks about right. Reversing that would most likely disable the autologin.
Code Sample
1:12345:respawn:/sbin/getty 115200 tty1
2:12345:respawn:/sbin/getty 115200 tty2
3:12345:respawn:/sbin/getty 115200 tty3
4:12345:respawn:/sbin/getty 115200 tty4
5:12345:respawn:/sbin/getty 115200 tty5
6:12345:respawn:/sbin/getty 115200 tty6

This is the relevant section of my /etc/inittab file. Do note that I have done "apt-get dist-upgrade", from the "testing" ("sarge") release, and have also installed xserver-xfree86. I have it set up for the more normal six virtual consoles, rather than the initial 4, and they all come up on boot as opposed to just the first. It may be worth changing just the last line to check if it works on a "normal" DSL hdinstall, as I have no idea if it actually will.
