howto add session to kdm - mandrake 9

I cannot figure out how to add a new session - enlightenment. I can get it to appear in the drop down list but not execute. The Xsession is different to the one in the HOWTO. what do I need to do, also the text on kdm login has now changed to arabic, what did I do to get that? and how do I get it back to the way it was.

don't worry about it I have it sorted. in case anybody wants to know, look in /etc/X11/wmsession.d and make your own file according to the same format as the others in there. there is a description on the forum somewhere. The arabic writing was a simple case of editing /usr/share/config/kdm/kdmrc and changing the language to =en. Nice job
