Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Originally posted by Feldon I am running Debian 188.8.131.52. I login via GDM and use KDE as my desktop environment. I was removing all the useless services/daemons and I wondered which of gdm, kdm or xdm I need??
My guess is just gdm??? Thanks for your input.
That is correct, if that's the one you use to log-in to KDE! You can safely remove the others!
Well on a standalone machine if you desire a display manager then that's totally up to you. But don't forget you can do without any of them and just start your X session from a console.
I do however like gdm better as it tends to look better than kdm. But then again If I'm using anything besides kde I prefer gdm. If I'm using kde then I prefer kdm. Kind of like a fasion statement............everything has to match or your clashing lol.
