The /etc/sysconfig/desktop setting is what I try first, of course.  But 
I've discovered that for whatever reason, that doesn't always work.  So, 
I just head into /etc/X11/prefdm and change the order of GDM, KDM, and 
XDM to put KDM first.

Microsoft Free since 2003 <http://www.cmosnetworks.com>--the ultimate
