Login Manager

RedHat, so others distribution, have a file at "/etc/sysconfig/desktop", 
when you can write environment variables setting parameters do X script 
that trigger the Graphical Mananger (KDM, GDM, XDM, etc). But it doesn't 
work well in RedHat 8.0, RedHat 9.0 and Mandrake 9.1 !!!

So, I suggest you to change the script: /etc/X11/prefdm, setting the 
variable "preferred" to "KDM", before the calling instruction at end of 
script. If you have problems to do it, requesting us to send you the 
necessary changes.

Good luck,
