I'll be more informed when you get a chance to send the correct
information (my mistake) below. But it appears that all you need to do
is reconfigure kdm so that it loads before your (user) login, and remove
.xinitrc from your (user) profile.
I "think" I've covered it except for the contents of /etc/X11/xinit,
they should be:-
# global xinitrc file, used by all X sessions started by xinit (startx)
# invoke global X session script
exec /usr/bin/X -nolisten tcp "$@"
>> $ ls -s /etc/alternatives | grep manager > ~/sessions.txt
Sorry! my mistake ^^^ that should have read:-
$ ls -l /etc/alternatives | grep manager > ~/sessions.txt

As many people as you want can be in the same thread. Just try and
incorporate the responses in the same thread (where possible).
I know - many people *don't* post like that. Many people top post too...
and treat email/list communications like postcards rather than
conversations involving multiple people.
