It is possible that you'll end having to base your documentation on the dm
version for the file used, and on the distribution version for the location of
the file.

I can give some information about gdm :

The gdm-2.0beta2-37 uses its own file gdm.conf. It comes with redhat 7.0. In
this distribution and in other 7.x distributions, it is in
/etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf. It is possible that this version of gdm is broken and 
cannot be used with Xvnc, but I may be wrong.

gdm-2.2.4.2 also uses its own gdm.conf. It works. I don't know where I got it
from, because it doesn't seems to be in the redhat 7.2 nor in rawhide...
It doesn't seems to use the xdm files.

gdm-2.2.3.1 comes with redhat 7.2. I haven't tested, but I think it should
work and I also think that it doesn't use the xdm files, but I haven't tested.

Hope it helps
