Oops.  I was wrong about that in my last message since prefdm launches
the display manager which in turn launches a local X server.  I think
the easiest way to get kdm (as opposed to gdm or xdm) running is to have
"KDE" in your /etc/sysconfig/desktop file.  To get xdm to not launch a
local X server, just comment out the ":0" line in /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers.
I'm pretty sure the default Red Hat installation of kdm also looks at
that file.  If it doesn't work, you'll have to look for the "Xservers"
line in your kdmrc.
