xdm and twm

rc-update add xdm default
Now whenever the machine boots, it will only bring up twm, no kde. No option for which session to choose from. At least not that I can see.
KDE and Xfce4 are installed.
So I edited inittab, set it to boot to runlevel 3.
Created a .xinitrc file, put "exec startkde".

rc-update del xdm default
