installing kde in zenwalk

I installed KDE packages from my Slackware 12 CD in my Zenwalk 4.6. I also installed qt and other dependencies. However KDE is not in the session type list at the login prompt. When in XFCE, I can run KDE on top of XFCE! But how can I add it to the session list so that I can boot into KDE instead of XFCE?
By the way I tried wmconfig and chose KDE but it didn't work.
Where is the config file for the login manager's list of sessions?

why didn't you just install kde with netpkg ?

Problem is (as far as i remember) ZW and slack aren't using same paths, there no "currect" .desktop in slack pkg, ...

If a packager took time to create a ZW package (of any soft, not only kde), it's because there was a problem/incompatibility with slack's one, otherwise slack's one is used

My problem is that I don't have broadband connection. I have to use Cds.
