Question "Cannot execute KDE: No such file or directory"


I just finished installing Slackware 9.0. When I attempt to login, I receive the message:

"Cannot execute KDE: No such file or directory"

Slackware then sends me back to the login. I cannot login. Is there a way that I can change the shell before I reach the login prompt, so that I can at least login?

Try entering:
<ctrl> <alt> <F3>
that should give you a command line login prompt.
