The startup script for run level 4 is /etc/rc.d/rc.4. Switch the order of the lines to load kdm first instead of gdm.

Well, I like sunflower-seeds, but not looking at the sunflower in my login screen. Heh, heh!

I think what got to me was the fact that I could not find a way to shutdown my system. I ended up going into KDE, starting a console session, and typing shutdown -h now. Yikes!

I already set the inittab back to default CLI mode. That way next time I use my puter it doesn't sunflower me. HEh, heh! Seriously, tho. I need to have more options at the login screen. Other than choosing the window manager and what language to use.

Got kdm in there!

I opened /etc/rc.d/rc4.d(?) and commented out the gdm lines.

Life is great again!
