SLiM & WDM problem
I have searched far and wide...How do I get SLiM or WDM to initialize at boot up? I have tried the inittab options on the slim and wdm web pages but neither seem to work. I am using an old laptop so I didn't install kde and qt, so kdm isn't an option. I am using xfce 4.4 beta and would like a pretty login screen to go with it. XDM just doesn't cut it for me.

Edit /etc/rc.d/rc.4 and insert launching for your requested display manager at the beginning.
It may look like then


# Tell the viewers what's going to happen...
echo "Starting up X11 session manager..."

if [ -x /usr/local/bin/wdm]; then
  exec /usr/local/bin/wdm -nodaemon

# Try to use GNOME's gdm session manager:
if [ -x /usr/bin/gdm ]; then
