Nope, your choice on login manager as far as I can tell should have no effect
on how your DE operates. You can use KDM, kdm-kde4, gdm (from Gnome) xdm,
wdm, or sdm. I don't see any real differences visually between the 2 kdm's,
but I am sure that KDE4's probably has more bug fixes and the like.
The only difference between the other login managers are what options they all
provide. wdm and xdm are more basic, and GDM I believe has a 'failsafe' mode
if your xorg settings get shot.
