Ok, this sounds like like what I am looking for but, I seem to be brain
dead. If I modify the wdm-config as noted and resart wdm via
# /etc/init.d/wdm resart
I just get the normal login. Which I assume is the correct behavior for
wdm since I haven't started X as noted (and yes the chooser is installed).
# /etc/init.d/wdm stop
# X -indirect localhost
and I get an X background with a mouse cursor but no wdm panel. I, once
again, assume that this is the correct behavior. So I am now thinking,
do I pass these options to X via the /etc/X11/wdm/Xservers file? If so
the syntax is beyond me at the moment. I would like to think that I am
not as dumb as a bag of hammers but facts tend to implicate me as so
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

And, no, I don't know what this has to do with anything.
