Hmm Interesting.  I use Redhat 9.0 and You dont have to do any configuration
like the one you mentioned to make KDE as your default desktop manager.
Just choose
which type of Desktop Manager you want and it will ask you whether you want
to make this as your default one (say "Yes") and bingo that will become your
default
desktop manager.  I repeat i havent done any conf changes.  It does all by
itself.
May be you guys using older version of Redhat.  I m quite interested in what
version
of Redhat you guys have.

Just sharing my thoughts guys :).
