is there a way of switching between the loader of desktop managers.. i issued the command "init 4" and it makes a graphical boot.. but whenever i boot, it only boots gnome (gdm).. i'd like to switch from gdm to xdm.. answers..?

i don't know exactly which file it is, but in some /etc/rc.d/rc.?
there are the options for runlevel 4, maybe rc.M or alike?
there you just have to comment the lines with gdm/kdm out (use #)

edit /etc/rc.d/rc.4

and comment out all the lines except xdm:

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

# Not there? OK, try to use KDE's kdm session manager:
#if [ -x /opt/kde/bin/kdm ]; then
# exec /opt/kde/bin/kdm -nodaemon

# If all you have is XDM, I guess it will have to do:
if [ -x /usr/X11R6/bin/xdm ]; then
exec /usr/X11R6/bin/xdm -nodaemon
