KDE restart computer options


How do I get the logout screen (the one with end session, restart computer and shutoff computer) to show the grub options under the restart computer option?

Using KDE from the repo - http://apt.kde-redhat.org/apt/kde-re...edora/kde.repo

Using kcontrol (KDE Control Center):

Select 'System Administration' branch
-> then 'Login Manager'
-> open tab 'Shutdown'
--> in Box 'Miscellaneous'
--> choose in 'Boot Manager' Pulldown-box: 'Grub'

(To change something, you must have changed to Administrator mode via the button down
there)

Or add this entry in section [Shutdown] of the file /etc/kde3/kdm/kdmrc
Code:
[Shutdown]
BootManager=Grub

I have done that already and the section of the /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc file reflects:

Code:
[Shutdown]
BootManager=Grub
HaltCmd=/sbin/poweroff
RebootCmd=/sbin/reboot
EDIT: Note that my file is not in the directory kde3. There is no kde3 directory.
