On my K12LTSP 5EL system, there's a file called /etc/gdm/custom.conf -- 
check that out.

I think I remember hearing that there were some problems with GDM on 
this system.  For instance, XDMCP chooser does not work.  Maybe it's 
been fixed by now.  Just keep this in mind in case the same bugs affect 
what you're trying to do.
