So the module being used is /opt/kde3/bin/kdm, but
/opt/kde/bin/startkde looks inside it for 'kdm3'? No wonder this stuff
confuses me. Thanks; I'll give that a try.

Just out of curiosity, is there a similar 'gotcha' with kwin?
Does /etc/sysconfig/windowmanager need to specify kwin3 instead of kwin?

# egrep 'kde|win' /etc/sysconfig/windowmanager
## Type: string(gnome,kde4,kde,lxde,xfce,twm,icewm)
## Default: kde4
## Config: profiles,kde,susewm
# Here you can set the default window manager (kde, fvwm, ...)
DEFAULT_WM="startkde"
# ps -A | egrep 'kde|win'

Sure; but how does that tell us anything about the internal names used by
these facilities? similarly,

$ egrep 'kde|kdm' /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager
## Type: string(kdm,xdm,gdm,wdm,entrance,console,lightdm,sddm)
# Here you can set the default Display manager
(kdm/xdm/gdm/wdm/entrance/console).
DISPLAYMANAGER="kdm3"
# Allow remote access (XDMCP) to your display manager (xdm/kdm/gdm). Please
note
# that a modified kdm or xdm configuration, e.g. by KDE control center
# Determine who will be able to shutdown or reboot the system in kdm.
Valid ## Config: kdm
# Defines extra Server Arguments given to the kdm display manager when

and

$ ps -A | egrep 'kde|kdm'

Doesn't show a relationship between kdm and kdm3 either.
And YaST isn't any better:

File: /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager
Possible Values: kdm, xdm, gdm, wdm, entrance, console, lightdm, sddm or
any value Default Value:
Description:

Here you can set the default Display manager
(kdm/xdm/gdm/wdm/entrance/console). all changes in this file require a
restart of the displaymanager

File: /etc/sysconfig/windowmanager
Possible Values: gnome, kde4, kde, lxde, xfce, twm, icewm or any value
Default Value: kde4
Configuration Script: profiles, kde, susewm
Description:

Here you can set the default window manager (kde, fvwm, ...)
changes here require at least a re-login

Someone has decided that KDE3 is passé, so no longer needs to be
documented
(in the OpenSuSE distro, anyway). (Not that any of this stuff was
well-documented to begin with; but that's a different issue.)
