Question changing user login screen in rh 7.3

Hi there,
I want to change the the user login screen, the one you get after X starts up and everything. I used Control Center in KDE to do it, but the changed screen from there shows up just for a second or so and then the old redhat screen comes up again. I tried looking for this on the net for a while, but zilch.
thanks in advance.

Try this;
login as root
Go to/usr/lib/x11/xdm/xsetup

Then open the file and scroll down to the bottom and comment out the last 4 lines.Save and exit and try logging out.That should get rid of it.
To be safe,copy the file and rename it,but I think redhat will automatically copy and rename it for you.HTH
