I don't truely understand this.  I'm following the upstream X format for
handling all of this.

the default kdmrc should *not* contain anything except for default and
failsafe as you can install kdm without kdebase or any other wm/sm.  The
new kdm menu-method allows for automatic creation of the System Type list
if you have menu installed and have enabled it.  (man kdm.options)

what does running kdm without kdmdesktop running do for you?  I'll tell ya,
it gives you the background colors.  Not it is not needed for kdm to function
or at least it doesn't seem like it, but if you want kdm to look nice you
need to run it...however that is a configuration file so you can disable it
if you don't want it ran.
