Well, let's say that the first thing I did after installing kdm was to
enable auto-login on my user, so yes, local security is not really a
concern for me (anyway, it's a home computer and anyone that could get
to a login screen would be physically sitting in front of it, so they
could boot on whatever live CD they'd like. So again, local security
is definitely not a concern for me).

You are right, on both counts. The X installation went fine, except
that I had to write a minimal xorg.conf file to force it to use the
nvidia module (a). And yes, I also get an error message (actually, a
warning) in the log (b).
But the system seems to be working perfectly, so now I'm just left to
copy my files and fine tune the install.
Thanks again for the help!
