Hi Folks,

I am compelled to start KDE from multi-user mode with following command;

# kdm &

I tried following steps without success;

creating /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ with only 2 lines
#! /bin/sh
kdm &

or with
exec "kdm &"
xinit kdm
xinit /usr/local/bin/kdm --
xinit /usr/local/bin/kdm

and chmod 500 /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ On booting it only 
booted to multi-user mode.

Kindly advise how to make KDE started automatically at booting
