Sorry, I misread your original post. I think you are right there is no
kdm option to change keyboard layouts - the thing I was describing comes
after you have logged in using kdm.
There may be options to achieve what you want by logging into your
system in a plain text console rather than using a display manager
login. You might then be able to set locale / keyboard map in the
console and afterwards start your gui with "startx"?
