53 <para>KDE4 comes with a graphical login interface called KDM (the KDE4 Display
54 Manager), which provides a customizable graphical login at boot. To use KDM,
55 you need to edit your <filename>/etc/inittab</filename> file (as the
56 <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem> user).
57 First, setup run-level 5 to start KDM (adjust
58 the path to kdm according to your system):</para>
