If you for example add gnome to it, you have to make sure that there exists a 
program called gnome that gets executed when you choose gnome in kdm. Sounds 
logical, but the problem is that I wanted to add gnome and I had to add 
gnome-session to make it work. 
So I made a symlink gnome which points to gnome-session. Now in kdm there is 
a choice for gnome, that starts the program gnome-session during login. 

Maybe there is another way of doing this, but this is what I did (as root):
ln -s /usr/bin/gnome-session /usr/bin/gnome
Then add gnome using above procedure (prefs->system->login manager) or add 
gnome to the SessionTypes in /etc/kde2/kdmrc.
