This should work fine:

$ su -               # enter root password at prompt
$ GCONFSYS=$(gconftool-2 --get-default-source)
$ gconftool-2 --config-source=$GCONFSYS --set /apps/gdm/simple-greeter/disable_user_list \
  --type bool true

Just tried it on my F10 box and it works like a charm.  You can't get
rid of the "Other..." selection AFAICT, but all the other faces
disappear as expected.  If you want the faces back, use "false."

The gconf-editor doesn't yet support editing alternate configuration
choices like this yet, but perhaps a knowledgeable person on this list
could help with that.
