Autologin into

Hey guys!

I installed Fedora Core 1 and I would like to set up autologin into KDE desktop.

I made KDE as the default desktop (using switchdesk KDE) and had no problems logging into KDE using the display manager.

I then used gdmsetup to set up automatic login. Now, everytime it logs in automatically, it keeps going into Gnome. I then disabled autologin, and type in usr/pswd at the display manager and loads up to KDE desktop just fine.

I looked into other threads and tried modifying files (i.e. setting anything I could to KDE instead of Gnome).

What am I missing??? All I want it to do is autologin into KDE but keeps going into Gnome.

Thank you much!
