Not really... KDM and GDM are pretty interchangable (although, as I said,
KDM seems more configurable).  You can use KDM and GDM to log into
E, FVWM, IceWM, whatever...

It's just that they come with KDE and Gnome, respectively, and use
Qt and GTK+, respectively.

Check freshmeat for alternatives which might be X-based, and still as
all-around useful as KDM.

BTW, you're playing with the Demo box, eh?  Don't break it!  There's a
demo Saturday!  Gimp and sound better still be working by then! :)
