You can also start kde like this if you donīt want a login manager: make a file called .xinitrc in your home directory, and type this in it: exec startkde
Now when you startx it should go straight to kde. If you want to disable this just delete the .xinitrc file. Note that you shouldnīt startx as root or it will load the whole kde as root (which isnīt a good idea )
edit: if you want to do this then you of course should remove kdm/xdm from your boot services since you will be starting kde from command line mode.
