Description of problem:
The new Fedora KDM theme is pretty cool. However, if it's meant to look like the old GDM theme, there's one big thing missing: it doesn't actually say "Fedora" anywhere on the screen! :)

Also, it doesn't appear to be configurable -- should it be configurable from the "Login Manager" control-centre module (in which case see bug 154976 I just submitted)? Or is it using a separate KDM theme manager (e.g.,, in which case I didn't see anything that looked likely as a configuration tool.

Also, one tiny thing (and maybe this was deliberate), after I logged in, the KDM screen went away and before I got the "starting KDE" splash screen, I saw a brief flash of the default Fedora wallpaper.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set DISPLAYMANAGER="KDE" in /etc/sysconfig/desktop

the fedora background image is still missing, it's now fixed in new fedora-logos.
the kdm theme config tool is still not a part of KDE 3.4.0, and so the user has to
do the change in kdmrc manually.

I hope the the KDM-Theme Manager (kdemtheme) will be added in next KDE release.
