Prolly depends on distro. On debian I installed gdm into the garnome
install directory (as root, but I don't know if that is needed [I
figrured so because of pam interaction]. Everything else I installed as
user). Then I edited /etc/init.d/gdm to point to the new gdm. Also,
either set HEED_DEFAULT_DISPLAY_MANAGER=false in /etc/init.d/gdm or
leave it as true, but change /etc/X11/default-display-manager to point
to new gdm. (There may be a Debian Way to set this, but I couldn't find
it and just used vi)
