Thanx is indeed there under System Settings -> Login Screen..however, i got 2 small issues...

1. I downloaded a login manager for Debian...( although I have RedHat 9)...That was because the colors were cool.....Now, I can choose it as my login manager through the system settings -> login manager...But when i log out and log back in, it displays another graphical login other than the one I have chosen......

2. I have chosen blue color for my panel....but when I log back in....the blue color is lost...and the panel switches to black color.....i dont know why this is happening.....

Any ideas friends?
