	I believe that if you don't install GNOME or KDE then you just get
xdm.  I haven't looked to see if kdm needs all the kde bloat in order to
run but I know that GNOME does.  I use gdm only because I also use
Evolution (and thus have all the GNOME crap^H^H^H^H stuff installed). 
wdm might be a good option.

Farewell neighbor.  Thank you for giving us a safe place for so many
