KDE3 Graphical login

I would like to be able to start KDE with a graphical login 
from runlevel 5.  My ~/.Xinitrc and ~/.Xsession files each 
contain "exec startkde" (without the quotes).  So, as root, 
I can startx and arrive at a KDE desktop.  But this means I 
have to log into the console beforehand, which is not 

My /etc/inittab contains a line which reads 
"x:5:respawn:/opt/kde/bin/kdm -nodaemon"

If I enter runlevel 5, I can get to a graphical login, but 
the xsesrver crashes as soon as I enter username, password 
and hit the ENTER key.  There is no info in 
/var/log/kdm.log that would indicate why this is happening. 
I would really appreciate some help with this  I haven't 
found anythin gin the hints that would explain why this is 
happening.  thanks in advance for any suggestions.
