Starting KDE remotely

Hi all. I recently bought a monitor/TV for my computer desk and thought, why not hook it up to my newly upgraded linux box. The new monitor is right next to my windows monitor and I am running a Synergy server to share the mouse and keyboard between the two machines and thier monitors. Now I don't reboot my linux box often at all but it is a pain in the ass to do it because I have to physically attach a keyboard to it in order to log in. the Synergy server will not let me share the mouse and keyboard until KDE is up. My question, is there a way to start KDE from command line and log in root?

thanks in advance
