On my 11.1 install, I've looked everywhere on the login screen and there
are only three things there: a set of buttons for the login enabled
users, a user entry box, and a password entry box. There is NO window
manager selection anywhere, and on my box I have KDE3, KDE4 and gnome


Just a guess:
if your /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager is configured to use "gdm" as
displaymanager, then watch carefully to the login screen bottom side,
you should see three input fields:

left: Language

center: Keyboard Layout

right: Window Manager you wish to use (based on what you have installed)
