KDE Greeter theme corrupt

Need some help guys
Running FC5, decided I'd try a new KDM theme, but its hosed my grpahical login.
Get the message:
"The theme for the graphical greeter is corrupt. It does not contain definition for the username/password entry element "
When I clock ok:
"There was an error loading the theme and the default theme could not be loaded. Attempting to start the standard greeter"#
Then it just hangs.

How can I set this back to default? I can get a non graphical login, but don't know which files to examine. From searching all I can find concerns GNOME rather than KDE so my file structure doesnt match.

managed to fix it, heres what I did for anyone else who hits the same snag.
Located offending theme in /usr/share/gdm/themes and renamed it, rebooted successfully into default and then used control centre to delete it.
Will be leaving KDM well alone from now on!
