If this is a Linux question, then it should be posted to the: KDE-Linux 
list.  Next time please use the other list, but no problem.

How to switch from GDM to KDM is distro dependent in Linux.

If you have a Sys V type startup system the non-distro dependent method 
is to change the last line in: /etc/inittab

for KDM, this would be:


{your path may vary; it will be $KDEDIR/share/config/kdm but you can't 
use that directly because $KDEDIR won't be set yet.}

If your current line does NOT end in "gdm" you probably have some disto 
dependent application to switch desktops which you might want to use.

But the above will work if you just want to use KDM.
