The easiest thing to do is rather than play with the kdmrc file is to go into
root and run the control centre. Then go to the user login manager there.
Of course you then can't login as root and go to the user login manager (you
can't work it as a normal user) :-(
The other thing you can do, is allow the user to login as root but NOT have
root in the potential list of logins on the display.
Bear in mind that unless you do some editing of /etc/inittab you can always do
an ALT_CTRL_F1 and login as root on a console so this is not much of a
security wall anyway.
