cannot login to gui

I got tired of looking at the default mandrake backdrop at start-up, so I changed the background Pic (I thought) - now when X starts, it shows only that picture - no login screen. Please help - I am very new to Linux

Wasn't the desktop I changed, but the background screen at start-up. Used the KDE preferences - login options screen
