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.

On my Debian I THINK its /etc/init.d/kdm - That says "K Desktop Manager". Otherwise I don't see anything labeled KDE and I don't use it. This script is to run the kdm daemon but there is no man page for that to confirm it is KDE but I don't know of any other "K Desktop Manager".
I also have a gdm for gnome.
Of course in /etc/rc?.d there are symbolic links to whats in /etc/init.d so that it starts at a given run level.
You might look for "startx" or "xinit" in /etc/init.d/* to see if anything else is trying to start X windows.
