permissions are a funny thing:
777 = r w x | r w x | r w x
500 = r - x | - - - | - - -
first number is for the owner (in this case root)
second is for group (also root)
third is for everyone else
so for "chmod 500" only root (in this case) can read and execute the file
and as for kde....are you getting the gdm login screen right now? [/B]
to change the login screen, run pkgtool (as root), select setup then xwmconfig. As you will see this is a good place to set things up for other things too.
