If we want to run BOINC at boot without need to login, we have to
configure login manager (kdm/gdm/xdm/...) to accept connections. Maybe
it's good to add firewall rule to block connections to UDP port 177 and
TCP port 6000 afterwards (if you are on public internet) .

On Ubuntu (10.10) with GDM (default) create file /etc/gdm/custom.conf with following content:

On any other distribution or login manager just google for location of
config file and proper option to allow "remote" connections (xdmcp).

Then edit BOINC init script /etc/init.d/boinc-client as suggested before (add to start() function):
sleep 20 # wait for X server to start for sure
export DISPLAY=:0.0 # maybe not necessary..
/usr/bin/xhost local:boinc &> /dev/null # add permisions for boinc to connect to X server
