Gnome login manager/screen/dialog. Grub2 hasn't been out that long
yet. But I do hear lots of good about it.
Me, I'm a simple Slackware user. I set up my friend's Slackware so as
to auto login to the KDE desktop. This uses KDM (kde login manager)
They are ok with it (not ugly).
BTW, XDM is the generic, an X Windows login manager which may be used
for a variety of the different desktops.
GDM, KDM, XDM
But I use none of those three. Instead, I login on a terminal:
al@P5Q:~$ Welcome to Linux 220.127.116.11-smp (tty1)
and then I start X
which I have configured so as to load the KDE desktop.
I'm on 12.2 Slackware. I skipped the 13.0 release of Slackware.
I'm soon to install 13.1 Slackware.
When I do, I may use KDM. But I might not.
It's Slackware. Do what you want to do.
BTW Slackware defaults to Lilo but has a option to use Grub instead.
Grub2 might be a Slackware /extra package by now (available for those
who want to use it).
