KDE 3.3 Message

Hello All,
I'm running Simply Mepis 2004 with KDE 3.3. Every time I start it the KDM has the following message displayed:
Warning: this is an unsecured session.
Anyone know how to get rid of this?

It's at the initial login screen. The one where you pick which user to go in as.

Sorry to barge into your post Darkstar, but I am also running Simply Mepis 2004. I also started receiving the same message after
upgrading KDE to 3.3. I've totally exhausted my limited knowledge on fixing the problem. Hopefully someone can help us out.

I don't know if it's a Mepis problem or a KDE problem.

open up /etc/kde3/kdm/kdmrc and change the value of Authorize from false to true under the X-Core section.
