I just thought of something; if Pat prefers KDE to Gnome so much, why in Slackware 9.1 and 10 is GDM the default login manager? I mean, the rc.4 script has an IF...ELSE structure that loads GDM if found, KDM if no GDM, and XDM if no KDM. It would make more sense to either use KDM first (since he uses KDE), or better yet, to use XDM first so it is truly DE-agnostic.
