I am a Linux newbie so please forgive me if i am missing something that is simple.

However i am trying to modify and personalize my system and when i try to create my own login screen with KDM and KDM accepts all the changes i make E.G, font colors and background, dialog box position, and disable password-less Login's. While i have not found anything to modify for the former the latter i had to modify a value in /etc using the YaST /etc/sysconfig editing module. Do i have to do the same for some value in the etc directory to make my KDM modifications work.

Also i disabled my splash screen since i just do not like the color what type of file do i need to create a new one. Is it purely program animation based with binary drawing on the screen or can i just modify a conf file somewhere to make it my own.
