I'm not sure what you're asking. Most things concerning the login (add/remove users, auto-login, etc) can be done in the Mandrake Control Center.

You can't really chnage the look and feel of KDM or MDKKDM, you can change a few settings through the system administration section of kcontrol. GDM however, can be themed so maybe you may want to use that instead of KDM.

You can change the background, and some features of the login screen.

in the "configure your desktop"

go to System -> Login Manager
you can figure it out from there
