Cool OMFG KDE Built! k, how do I run it from KDM?

Ok, after a few days doing battles through dependency hell, I've built the newest version of KDE on my mandriva box using konstruct. It has that new baby smell, it's great

Only question is, how do I edit KDM so my new shiny happier KDE is the KDE that I am referring to when I select it from the sessions menu? *preferably* without hosing my existing kde 3.3 install.

you need to edit your kdeinit file and have it point to where your new KDE directory is............kdeinit is usually located in /etc/X11
just do a search for it.

That's a binary?

/usr/bin/kdeinit, I can't edit it, it's a bin
