yeah sorry...I'm just learning on these things and I'm using k12ltsp-6
which puts kdmrc in /etc/X11/xdm - but I'm also fooling with Fedora 7
which puts kdmrc in /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc

it's a moving target to be sure  ;-)

Thanks, that was it though I have found it to be more interesting to
duplicate the FedoraDNA theme and then customize from there.
