I have installed RH8 on an old Compaq Deskpro 4000 (P200, 96MB RAM) as a test and learning box. To get the configuration correct, I needed KDE. Now that everything is OK, I want to remove KDE and just have X as the graphical login, should I need to access the box directly. I expect that I can access the box remotely (using Reflection) to do everything I need to do.

So, how do I remove KDE and have just X as the default graphical login?

Many thanks in advance..

Don't know if you can have a graphical logon with out a windows manager.

You can boot up with out starting X i.e. command line prompt. And then if you want to start KDE just type in startx.

i am not sure about removing KDE completely, but you can make linux start in just text login (without KDE or GNOME, not graphical interface)
what you have to do is edit the /etc/inittab file.
change the value
id:5:inidefault to id:3:inidefault
at any time while in text mode type startx to go back to Graphical interface. you can do the opposite of the above to start computer in graphical interface
