What does the DISPLAYMANAGER variable say in /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager?
Could it be that it says xdm? If it does, do the following:

Log out
switch to a text console with ctrl-alt-f1
log in as root
run rcxdm stop
edit the /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager file and change DISPLAYMANAGER from xdm
to kdm
run rcxdm start

Yes, a logout will restart X, but not the display manager, which may at times
be necessary when you make changes to the display manager configuration.
