The default display manager in K12LTSP 2.x and 3.1.x is GDM. In 3.0.x,
it is KDM. If you upgrade from 3.0.x to 3.1.x, it will remain KDM.

Switching back-and-forth is pretty easy, there is probably a GUI tool
but I just do it by hand.

Edit /etc/sysconfig/desktop and set the DISPLAYMANAGER variable:

for GDM:


for KDM:


This is read on startup, so you'll need to reboot.
