Re: [vox-tech] Setting faces on KDM

On Mandrake and RedHat, there's something called "prefdm" that will launch
the *DM of your preference.  It used to be a symbolic link to xdm, kdm, or
gdm, but apparently it's now a script.  On Mandrake 8.2 I'm working on, it
reads /etc/sysconfig/desktop to determine which DM you want to run.
